Tweet - Children's Museum of the Arts
Add to Calendar 26-09-2013 26-01-2014 15 Tweet Any adult of a certain age asked to define tweet in 2013 is likely to answer that it is a "short communication of 140 characters or less." Yet before 2006, tweet was primarily used to describe the chirp of a bird, a sound generally perceived as a sweet or happy sound. In New York City, you witness more and more pedestrians striding through life with heads buried in smartphones. People tweet, text, and email on the go. The simple act of looking around as you go about our daily journey is being lost to an ever more fragmented and hectic contemporary society. The exhibition Tweet asks everyone to pause, reflect, and remember a simple act that is available to everyone. Look around, enjoy nature, and see the birds. All the artworks included in Tweet come from a similar starting point – that of careful observation of nature, specifically of birds. To identify and study at great and near distances, with quiet observation and in fleeting moments – this kind of looking is encouraged by these works. As part of the exhibition, CMA asks viewers to use their technology to come together in shared games around bird spotting, or to simply put the gadgets away and draw from nature. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=144801 Children's Museum of the Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
