Yesterday our Brand Marketing team got the chance to experience MoMA’s new exhibition, “Talk to Me”. The new exhibition dives into design and the communication between people and objects:
The exhibition focuses on objects that involve a direct interaction, such as interfaces, information systems, visualization design, and communication devices, and on projects that establish an emotional, sensual, or intellectual connection with their users.
If you happen to live in NYC or plan to visit soon, I would definitely recommend stopping at the MoMA before November 7th!
Here’s a glimpse of my favorite examples from “Talk to Me”:
1. Eyewriter - It is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis to draw using only their eyes
2. Touch Hear - By touching a word or phrase, one can listen to its pronunciation or its meaning. The gadget whispers the missing information into the ear, without interrupting the flow of reading
3. Situationist App - iPhone app that alerts members to each other’s proximity and get them to interact in random situations
4. Phantom Recorder - Conceptual medical device that re-imagines phantom limb sensations as nostalgic memories
5. Artificial Biological Clock - An object that recieves information from her doctor, therapist and bank manager and alerts her when she is physicallly, mentally and economically ready to start a family
