Never Alone: Video Games and Other Interactive Design tour with Paola Antonelli and Paul Galloway (MoMA Virtual Tour) Online
As our devices like to remind us, we spend a huge portion of our lives in digital worlds. The interfaces we use to access them—from Zoom to FaceTime, WhatsApp to Discord, Roblox to Fortnite—are visual and tactile manifestations of code that both connect and separate us, and shape the way we behave and perceive others. This virtual exhibition, drawn from work in MoMA’s collection, ranges from the iconic and universal @ sign, a symbol dating back to the Middle Ages, to an ad hoc device that allows a graffiti artist with ALS to tag city walls from their bed. Games range from global staples such as Tetris and Pac-Man, to immersive explorations of the natural world, like Flower, or records of indigenous traditions and culture, like Never Alone, to forays into the absurd like Everything Is Going to Be OK.
Brought to you by the Museum of Modern Art and a collaboration by Greenburgh Public Library, Scarsdale Public Library, Poundridge Library, Warner Library, and Lewisboro Library.
