NY Under Another Light

The New York Talk Exchange (NYTE) is part of the Design and Elastic Mind exhibition at the MoMA.

To reveal the relationships that New Yorkers have with the rest of the world, New York Talk Exchange asks: How does the city of New York connect to other cities? With which cities does New York have the strongest ties and how do these relationships shift with time? How does the rest of the world reach into the neighborhoods of New York?

The answer illustrates the global exchange of information in real time by visualizing volumes of long distance telephone and IP (Internet Protocol) data flowing between New York and cities around the world.

You can see high resolution images and videos at the senseable MIT labs.
