MoMA- The Media Lounge

Went to MoMA to see the new(ish) Media Lounge and I got a little distracted by the amazingness of the Quay Brothers exhibition. But, the Media Lounge is great. I could sit there all day and watch media artworks. The quality of the works is beautiful, and the interface is easy to use, with categories and groupings to choose from to navigate the collection, and I look forward to the next phases when there is text to go along with each video. My one problem is that the physical spaces are closed off by colored fabric screens that make it look like a kids area, and I think that these works deserve better. I mean, why call it a media lounge if you aren’t going to make it a swanky adult lounge area? Think of the possibilities..
