“Design is really part of life. In particular, it’s a fundamental ingredient for progress. When technology people and when scientists create revolutions or create something new, designers are the ones who make these revolutions into objects that people can use.”
-Paola Antonelli at this year’s Web 2.0 Expo in New York City.
It’s a marvelous talk, if you’re into art, technology, design or human creativity.
Antonelli also introduced the Web 2.0 community to an exciting prospect:
The Museum of Modern Art will open a new show called “Talk to Me” on July 24 2011.
Talk to Me is an exhibition on the communication between people and objects that will open at The Museum of Modern Art on July 24th 2011. It will feature a wide range of objects from all over the world, from interfaces and products to diagrams, visualizations, perhaps even vehicles and furniture, by bona-fide designers, students, scientists, all designed in the past few years or currently under development. –Talk to Me blog
