Design and the Elastic Mind
I meant to write about this a while ago but got distracted by life and it for that matter. I’m referring to the Design and the Elastic Mind online exhibit presented by MoMA. I can’t take credit for this find. It was brought to my attention by a marvelous musical blond barbie friend. Since her tip I just haven’t been able to get enough. This interactive exhibit is a celebration of the art of design and the vital role it plays as a medium between raw science and technology and society. In their words:
Design and the Elastic Mind explores the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world by bringing together design objects and concepts that marry the most advanced scientific research with attentive consideration of human limitations, habits, and aspirations. The exhibition highlights designers’ ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and history—changes that demand or reflect major adjustments in human behavior—and translate them into objects that people can actually understand and use.
