Botanicalls in MoMA Exhibition

We’re tremendously excited that the Botanicalls project will be featured in MoMA’s upcoming “Talk to Me” Exhibition that opens July 24th in New York on the third floor of the Museum of Modern Art, continuing through November 7th, 2011. Here’s the official description:

Talk to Me explores the communication between people and things. The exhibition focuses on objects that involve a direct interaction, such as interfaces, information systems, visualization design, and communication devices, and on projects that establish an emotional, sensual, or intellectual connection with their users. Examples range from a few iconic products of the late 1960s to several projects currently in development—including computer and machine interfaces, websites, video games, devices and tools, furniture and physical products, and extending to installations and whole environments.

Botanicalls is a system that allows thirsty plants to reach out for human help. It has certainly come a long way from its noble beginnings at ITP, via many intriguing incarnations and kits, including the current one. There’s lots of other terrific projects in this exhibit, so if you’re thinking of being in New York City this year, plan a visit and check us out at MoMA!
