MAPP, or Mechanical Art Production Platform, was a Master’s Thesis project from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program. It is a 3-Axis Robot that runs both algorithmic and user-controlled custom software to create unique art pieces. It was featured at ‘Dance Robot Dance: A Night with Maker Faire’ at NYC’s Internet Week 2008, the ITP Spring Show 2008, and was on display at ITP’s summer gallery 2008.
