"It functions as a conversation piece … but it’s a migrating conversation piece, so wherever the museum goes, it not only keeps track of its findings, but also actually triggers all kinds of dialogues. There’s always someone (either the wearer or someone else, as other people also carry the museum around with them) showing the museum to friends and to other people, including passers-by, etc. so it often even triggers direct feedback, and it is an excellent pretext to start a discussion.
The NanoMuseum is a self-organized structure. It is an infinite mirroring into infinity, the museum within the museum within the museum." - Hans Ulrich Obrist
