For the unfamiliar The Museum of Modern Art’s unique exhibition titled, Design and the Elastic Mind explores the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world by bringing together design objects 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.
In short it is an utterly fascinating exhibition with a fresh premise. The exhibition is now available in full at MOMA’s website and keeping in theme with the exhibition itself, the website offers up some interesting usability features. If you are low on inspiration, plan on spending a little time there because it will definitely recharge your batteries in full.
