Hand from Above was selected to appear in the new show Talk to Me at MoMA (showing as a video).
“Talk to Me explores the communication between people and things. All objects contain information that goes well beyond their immediate use or appearance. In some cases, objects like cell phones and computers exist to provide us with access to complex systems and networks, behaving as gateways and interpreters. Whether openly and actively, or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us, and designers help us develop and improvise the dialogue.
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. Examples range from a few iconic products of the late 1960s to several projects currently in development—including computer and machine interfaces, websites, video games, devices and tools, furniture and physical products, and extending to installations and whole environments.”
The exhibition runs until Nov 2011 and is well worth a visit.
Sadly I couldn’t make it out to the show due to timing, so if anyone happens to take a photo of Hand from Above at Talk to Me, please do email it in.
