Google Drops Some Serious Aesthetic Knowledge on the Masses with “Art Talks”

Google Drops Some Serious Aesthetic Knowledge on the Masses with “Art Talks” | Creativity and learning | Scoop.it

“Our aim with the Art Project and the Google Cultural Institute is to make culture more accessible to more people,” says Schwartz . “Art Talks are a great example of how technology can facilitate that--anyone with an Internet connection can get access to some of the most knowledgeable people in the art world.”

The first Art Talk will be held on March 6 with New York’s Museum of Modern Art. A second one is scheduled on March 20 with the National Gallery in London.

Clive Hilton's insight:

To anyone interested in art or art history, this has to be a wonderful opportunity and a fabulous resource. It's one of the things that Google does very well indeed. That said, (no surprise) you'll need to join Google+ to take part in the discussions. So I won't.

It is often the case in interaction design that the best solutions simply get out of the way, allowing the user to achieve their goal and get on with their life. With Google Maps, this is certainly the desired outcome. Geographic navigation and search should be smooth, efficient, and ultimately straightforward. When this is successful and the product works as it should, the nuances and details behind these experiences can often go unnoticed, written off as algorithmically derived and invisible.
