On October 18, the third annual “Lighting the Way” Scholarship Gala invited around 100 guests, including members of the Foundation Board, university leadership, alumni, corporate sponsors, faculty members and students to NYU Shanghai for an evening of celebrating student achievement. 




Project Neuron Goes Live

Project Neuron, a visual and performance art piece by NYU Shanghai faculty, students and local artists debuted Mondayat the 43rd International Computer Music Conference. Dancers explored, built and shaped the city of Shanghai in the virtual world—their movements tracked and visualized as 3D graphics using a synthesis of motion capture and audio technologies. It took about 20 computers to power the live performance at the Shanghai Symphony Hall.
