MoMA Acquisition Completed

Five Botanicalls systems and one Botanicalls Kit were delivered to the MoMA Architecture & Design Collection last Wednesday.

In the photo below you can see them beginning their journey into deep storage, where they will stay before being examined by a conservator for preservation recommendations.

After that, it’s on to their permanent home in the MoMA Collection warehouse in Long Island City where they will go into the Design rotation, to show up periodically back in the Museum on the 3rd Floor. The work is always listed online. Other interesting things I learned were that all MoMA artists get an ID card that allows them free entry into the museum for life. Also any digital documentation we submit will be stored forever in a triple-backed-up server that checks itself four times a day, located someplace under a mountain. Serious.

The physical hardware was generously donated to MoMA by SparkFun Electronics.
