Is this the future of art shows?

The typical art show experience goes something like this. You check out what’s hanging, maybe you even enjoy it, but soon enough you’re just standing in a room full of strangers staring at their iPhones and sipping on Tecate or cheap wine. That’s why this Musical Poster project from creative residency 72U is actually pretty cool. It’s a framed poster hooked up to sensors and the idea is to let people interact more fully with it than traditional art work. That I can get behind.

72U let RAC be one of the first artists to experiment with the poster and here’s what he has to say about the project. What do you think, is this the future of art shows?
