THINK Exhibit NYC 9.30.2011

I could tell you that this exhibit was a tech nerd’s wet dream, but you should go see for yourself.  It’s free and open to the public, so there are really no excuses.  My favorite part of this exhibit was the interactive screens which showcased how technological advancements in mapping have changed since Galileo’s time.   Although the large media wall was visually engaging, I wish it clearly identified the variables being showcased across the screen.  Many awe-struck onlookers seemed confused by how the “live” data was being gathered … the fine particle collection devise, hidden at the base of the exterior exhibition ramp, should have been clearly identified.  For the uber-curious, there are friendly IBM staffers chillin on the ramp to help understand the “hidden” logic.  After you have crammed yourself with data, stop by and see a film at Lincoln Center during the NYFF or nap on the lawn adjacent to Julliard.
