I'm a little obsessed with the progress updates over at MoMa's Home Delivery blog. Not least: several of the videos are great -- but some of their best are hidden behind a proprietary interface.
Try this. In the top right corner of their blog, move your mouse over the image. With luck, a control bar will slide up a bit from the bottom.

In practice, it's hard to tell since there's not much action in some of them.
The time-lapse installation videos are definitely worth a look -- though it would be much better if each video was in a separate post that bloggers could link to.

We'll provide more information on the BURST.008 model when details are released. In the meantime, check out the other coverage we have of the exhibition:
