Metropath(ologies) is a new installation at the MIT Museum. It's about
living in a world overflowing with information and non-stop communication. The sounds and visual imagery incorporate live and recorded data ranging from personal updates and private information, to global news reports. Visitors may choose to become part of the exhibit, their images captured by surveillance cameras, their names entered into databases, their voices recorded and played back by in the echoing soundtrack.Yesterday, Nora interviewed Judith Donath from the Sociable Media research group at MIT about Metropath(ologies). A shorter version of the interview will air on Episode 69 of Spark, but you can listen to the full interview if you download the MP3.
