On Tuesday afternoon during spring break, I spent a couple hours at the Museum of Modern Art In NYC. One of the exhibits I enjoyed was entitled This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good. A purpose of this exhibit was for viewers to consider and question the synthesis of form and function in design. See the 3D Printed Dress above. Other designs shared were common symbols: Google Map's Red Pin, the Recycling symbol and the symbol for Creative Commons.
There was also a section entitled Design Interaction, which highlighted video games...yes, video games! The games exhibited were chosen based on their "visual quality, the architecture of the digital space, the types of behavior that the game elicits, and even the elegance of the code that makes it work". I'm fairly certain most of you are familiar with the chosen game shared below and many of you may also know the chosen game pictured below that. (If not, ask your parents; I think they may know about that one!)
My next post will tell you about my day today spent at the Newark Museum's Mini Maker Fair!
