Gallery: VIDEO: Inhabitat Interviews MoMA Curator Paola Antonelli About...

Designed by Antenna Design and the MTA back in 1999, MoMA describes the vending machines as dispensing cars "in a very New York spirit, suggesting colorful, never-boring transit ahead." We'll admit that we've never thought of the machines that way -- more often than not, we're annoyed at the machines for not reading our credit cards -- but it is an interesting and refreshing take on an object that we've come to consider bland and everyday.

    Hey Dan-

    I don’t Paola is saying that there is ‘no impact’ from disruptive innovation – just that there are positive and negative consequences and we just have to be open, as a society, to change, because it is going to happen, whether we like it or not.

    This looks like an amazing exhibit – I’m bummed I can’t make it out to see it!

    it’s interesting how Paola find’s no reservations in the increasing digital world and how it may affect human interactions and thoughts, to me everything affects everything, our views of products right now and how society works was greatly affected by the industrial revolution, why not the digital one?

    Can’t wait to check this out. I really enjoyed Paola’s discussion on past and current relationships between “disruptive innovations”!

    Great interview! I love the pieces that Antonelli pulls out as examples in the exhibit — the Tweenbot is so cute!

    Yet another awesome video. Completely unrelated, but love the outfit choice too.
