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.
