The modern poster dates back to 1870 when new printing techniques made colour lithography and mass production possible. According to French historian Max Gallo, “for over two hundred years, posters have been displayed in public places all over the world. Visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service.” (Wikipedia)
Up until now, the poster has been a passive flat surface without any form of interaction but ThingLink users have shown that interactive posters are an artform in themselves: posters have become touchable.
