Whether you know it or not, you speak with objects every day. You put the coffee machine on and tell it to make the beverage you want, your cell phone rings and it lets you who's calling and you treat your computer as a gateway to the online world. Essentially, you are interacting and communicating with the objects around you in a way that goes way beyond their obvious function. That relationship is the subject of a new exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City called "Talk to Me."
Paola Antonelli is the senior curator of architecture and design at MoMa. She talks more about design in everyday life and the idea behind "Talk to Me."
