The THINK exhibit

The THINK exhibit by IBM combines unique experiences to engage visitors in a conversation about how we can improve the way we live and work through interactive data.

The IBM THINK exhibit will be at Lincoln Center in New York from September 23 until October 23 2011. Visitors approaching the exhibit are drawn in by striking patterns displayed on a 123-foot digital wall.

Inside the exhibit space, visitors step into a media field composed of 40 seven-foot screens. As the screens come to life, visitors discover a 12-minute immersive film. A kaleidoscope of images and sound surrounds them. They are enveloped in a rich narrative about the pattern of progress, told through awe-inspiring stories of the past and present. They are inspired to think about humankind’s quest for progress, and about making our world work better, today.

At the conclusion of the film, the 40 media panels become interactive touchscreens, transforming the space into a forest of discovery. Visitors can explore our quest to see more—from clocks and scales to microscopes and telescopes, RFID chips and biomedical sensors. They learn how maps have been used to track data, from early geographical maps to the most recent databases and data visualization platforms. They interact with the models used to understand the complex behaviors of our world—from weather prediction algorithms to virus spread simulations. Each touchscreen also gives visitors the opportunity to provide their point of view and learn what others are thinking.
