Creators Project interviews Paola Antonelli about the forthcoming “Talk To Me” exhibition at MoMA including core themes driving this exhibition and a sneak preview of a few of the objects to be included in the show.
We may not think about it consciously on a day to day basis, but objects around us are always talking to us in both explicit and implicit ways. There’s the obvious directive of a stop sign or a traffic cone, but there’s also the unspoken messaging conveyed via the ATM machine, the alarm clock, and that shiny new iPad. Objects have always been designed with the idea of communicating their use and meaning in mind, and it’s this relationship that MoMA’s Senior Curator of Architecture and Design, Paola Antonelli, seeks to explore in her upcoming exhibition.
Talk to Me is slated for summer of 2011.
