Lady Gaga has hit the landscape of New York City this holiday with a window display at Barney's New York. Planted on Madison Avenue, a series of vignettes feature varying exotic incarnations of the Pop Queen.
"Gaga Constellation", an 8'x5' video wall is my favorite. It allows the occupier of the space to completely interact with the window through Twitter. With Gaga as the focal point, a constellation of tweets from her "little monsters" comprise the background. From your mobile device, you can tweet #gagastars and watch for your note to be posted in the window. Religion aside, it reminds me of Israel's Wailing Wall, a modern day take on a personal exchange of information in a forum-style setting.
