Location: The Museum of Modern Art
Dates: March 1 - January 31, 2014
Applied Design will take over the 3rd floor Architecture and Design galleries at MoMA in March and will examine how design affects every aspect of our life beyond aesthetics and deeper than purely function. Designers now have tools and resources available to them through the Internet, socially minded infrastructures and products, 5-D spaces, and bioengineering, which this exhibition takes into account. The photo above shows a mine detonator by designer Massoud Hassani that will be included in the show, alongside other pieces such as 14 video games including Pac-Man, The Sims, and Katamari Damacy.
