Paola Antonelli offers some interesting insights and perspectives on design, and the way designers work, and see the world. If you have 17:40 to spare, check it out… Paola Antonelli: Design and the elastic mind.
In her own words, she hopes “the exhibition will be able to track a new portrait of where design is going, which is always hopefully a portrait a few years in advance of where the world is going”. As examples she offers some really strange and wonderful design work from around the world.
If you enjoy this, read more about the exhibit with the same name which she curated at MOMA.
Subjects covered: nanotechnology, collective design, design as art, the relationship between art and science, telepresence, rapid manufacturing, biotechnology, and other new and unusual areas of design.
