Design and the Elastic Mind

Abstract:
"Design and the Elastic Mind," a current exhibition at the New York MoMA running through May 12, brings together a wide range of design, art, architectural, computational and scientific experiments that challenge us to stretch our minds and see how design participates in science and science can be engaged in design. The intermingling of design and science is part of a larger trend where design is being explored as a process of knowledge creation across many scales. Design work included spans nano-art, sensory design, 3D printing, open-source computational design, visualization of networks and the internet, experiments in the design of future culture and the making of new worlds. This is a must-see show!

Design as a tool for learning can increase our understanding and appreciation of the world around us, as well as enable designers to participate in a wider technological, cultural and environmental discourse creating the world of the future. Considering design in such a way is not new, though it stands in contrast to design embedded in commercial culture where instead of representing hidden relationships and enabling sustainability, design is used to represent a commodity's necessity for an image of modern living.
