Dear Data headed to MoMA’s permanent collection

Nov 22, 2016

What started as a personal project and then turned into a book, Dear Data was a collaboration between pen pals through data. Now Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec’s work is headed to the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

[O]ur 104 original postcards and the many sketchbooks we filled with intermediate data drawings every week have found the best possible home for years to come. They will live in the archives and catalogue of one of the world’s most prestigious institution (well, we think so, at least!), humbled by being in the presence of the dazzling company of the great masters of art of the past two centuries.

This is amazing. Congratulations to Giorgia and Stefanie.
