MoMA – Talk to Me

The purpose of design began to shift in the late 20th century from utility toward a more holistic combination of purpose and meaning.
Thus far, 21st-century culture is centered on interaction:
“I communicate, therefore I am” is the defining affirmation of contemporary existence, and objects and systems that were once charged only with formal elegance and functional soundness are now also expected to have personalities. Contemporary designers do not just provide function, form, and meaning, but also must draft the scripts that allow people and things to develop and improvise a dialogue.

Summer

Update: it’s sunny!
While Room357 deserves a summer break, I will occasionally update with treats that might evoke the ‘oh, definitely would have shared this in class’ type of thought.
Happy (relaxing) summer!

Many discussions about online social presence and how communication might be affected, took place in class during the past year. With true conversation starter compliments turning into ‘Like’s, and human ability to provide 140 character fractions of one’s experience, a new Facebook App offers the exact opposite, translating, unifying and documenting online data into a tangible form, a book!

*It’s very helpful to have a cool+ uber talented UX designer sister sharing links, thanks Babi!
