Why mechanical scale models have a hard time dealing with crises and how inspirations from biology and social technologies can help us deal with change.
Art, Science, and Technology to promote human development
The annual IPTI [US] event is a showcase of our projects and celebrates the results achieved so far. This event was held on October 7, 2019, at The Loeb Boathouse – Central Park, and brought together 150 guests for a special evening.
The 2018 IPTI Annual Event was held at the Yale Club in New York, and this year we brought Ivia, a 17-year-old girl from Rua da Palha in Santa Luzia do Itanhy, who is one of CLOC’s participants. CLOC is a social technology that identifies and develops local programming talent to create a highly qualified core in advanced programming. Ivia brought a robot developed by her and talked about how this project changed her life. Now she is a programming teacher and is starting a software development company with her classmates.
The 2017 IPTI Annual Event was held at the Yale Club in New York for 150 guests. The evening began with a cocktail party where we displayed our silent auction items donated by several friends. The cocktail was followed by a dinner where our guests had the opportunity to meet Matheus, a resident of the Crasto village of Santa Luzia do Itanhy, one of the beneficiaries of the Arte Naturalista. This project identifies and develops local illustration talents (watercolor, ink, graphite, and pastel). As students develop their skills, they also become part of a core of illustrators with the role of reapplying art teaching in the schools of their respective communities. Matheus told the audience how this project transformed his life. Today he is a drawing teacher and one of the founders of an illustration/design/fashion company called Casa do Cacete.
