Bjork's Biophilia added to MoMA's permanent collection

The collection of apps that formed the central part of Bjork's sprawling Biophilia release have been added to MoMA's permanent collection. The first software to be added was John Maeda's Reactive Books in 1994, but Biophilia is the first software to be added to the collection which exists separately as downloadable app.

Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Department of Architecture and Design has written on the acquisition here, and view Bjork's Biophilia in the collection here.
