“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:
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
