4-in-4 is bold scheme to do four creative projects in four days. The Resident Researchers at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications program pioneered this venture with an overly ambitious 7 in 7 event back in June 2008. Since that time the event has been repeated several times, each an experiment with different times and spaces done by volunteer ITP coordinators.

The mandate:

  • Do a creative project every day for four straight days.
  • Projects must be completed in a single day, so the results need to be as compact as they are creative.
  • Each project needs a name and documentation posted by the end of the day. It should be a stand-alone accomplishment.

The outcomes:

  • Strengthening creative community
  • Personal productivity
  • Plenty of fun
  • and a collective gallery of dozens of brand-new creations
