One of the strengths of the Museum of Modern Art in New York is its ability to transfer ideas and experiences from the galleries to the web. Among the accomplishments, and perhaps the finest, in this vein is Design and the Elastic Mind. In short, the exhibit is about the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world. How adjustments in human behavior are understood by science, and made to useful objects through the design process. Many of the objects that feature on the web are not on view on site. The web portion itself is a free flowing exhibition, allowing us to bounce back and forth through topics, people and place and create our own trajectory through Design and the Elastic Mind.
