The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has a new exhibit, and the basic premise of it is to say that communication is now the driving point in design, according to the New York Convergence.
The exhibit called "Talk to Me" has a wide range of communitive methods that are now available due to the computer and digital age. One of its programs named "Eyewriter" was developed to improve the communication between 911 emergency command centers, and the designer, Tony Quan, was aided by many organizations in order to finish it, according to the news provider.
"We went through so many changes in the definition of design in the 20th century with all the cliches about form following function, and the addition of meaning in the 1960s with post-structuralism, but what is really important right now is communication," Paola Antonelli, senior curator of architecture and design at MoMa, told the New York Times.
According to The Record, the exhibit also has tons of digital pets for children including Talking Carol and Tweenbot.
