Notes, links, etc | The Smithsonian's design museum just got some...
"Its weird really. You’re standing there in front of something, perhaps its an ancient artefact, buried for thousands of years - perhaps its a mummy, partially unwrapped. A real human being, you can see their face from all those years ago, see how they lived, what they ate. History, right there… But whatev’s. Look! There’s a telly over there!" Yep.

Minimum Viable Viking « Matthew Sheret
"It was so serene. These thousand year-old vessells command the space, and visitors are asked to contemplate them more than they’re asked to learn about them. We joked that it was the minimum viable museum… and there’s something in that. There were no distractions, no ‘spooky-action-at-a-distance‘, just a terrific lump of timeshifted history." Lovely.

Really beautiful, and a nice reminder of how robust installation design can be. Also: music by Todd Terje!
