Talk to me

We’re super excited about Talk to Me, a brilliant new exhibition at MOMA in New York. It’s all about exploring the communication between people and things.

The curators, Paola Antonelli and Kate Carmody, have pulled together a massive range of objects. Everything from interfaces and diagrams, to artworks, to ticket kiosksA mobile phone box. And a hip-hop lyric database. There’s work by our mate David McCandless, the MIT SENSEable Cities Lab, and Frank Warren (the guy who runs PostSecret).

And we’re pretty delighted that two of Poke’s projects made the cut. Good Things Should Never End is on display in the ‘worlds’ category. And Baker Tweet is part of the ‘city’ category – it will be announcing what’s cooking in the MOMA restaurant. (Going to exhibitions is hungry work).

We’d cross the Atlantic to see Talk To Me.  But if you can’t make it there in person, Antonelli and Carmody have recorded their process on an open source blog. Essential reading.

Talk to Me is at MOMA from 24 July – 7 November 2011
