..I meant ‘think’
I caught IBM’s temporary installation THINK this fall at the Lincoln Centre, an inspirational and thought-provoking exhibit featuring real-time data, algorithm and analysis. The aim was to immerse the viewers into an operation with instantaneous references and their evaluation, thus helping us realize how deep the human quest can be (ought to be) to make the world more livable, safer, more efficient, and more sustainable.
With today’s technology, it is possible to visualize, interpret, map and understand the dynamics of information crucial for action toward a join common goal of progressive and sustainable present and future.
With ‘Think’ the company, celebrating its centennial, explores how the world works and how to make it work better. It tackles essential issues that all megacities face – traffic, urban spatiality, air index quality, renewable energies – displaying them in real time and visually linking them to innovative proposals and concepts.
One of the messages was that we must keep moving sensibly into the future.
Good one for the upcoming year, don’t you THINK?
