This is more of a FYI than a post – if you’ve been to MoMA lately and saw the Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition you might be interested in the one day symposium April 4th titled MIND08. There quite the list of speakers: Paola Antonelli, co-host, Ben Aranda, Jessica Banks, Ayah Bdeir, Adam Bly, co-host, Laurene Boym, Chandler Burr, Erik Demaine, Drew Endy, Marc Fornes, Hugh Herr, Chuck Hoberman, Jamer Hunt, co-host, Natalie Jeremijenko, Chris Lasch, Christophe Laudamiel, Janna Levin, Greg Lynn, Benoit Mandelbrot, Henry Markram, Neri Oxman, Fiona Raby, Bradley Samuels, Kevin Slavin, Paul Steinhardt and Skylar Tibbits. This is how the event is described “Collaboration between science and design is yielding a radical new way of visualizing, understanding, and manipulating the natural world. MIND08 is a conference, presented by Seed and MoMA and inspired by Design and the Elastic Mind, which aims to catalyze this convergence. Bringing together an eclectic group of speakers and participants, including leading scientists, designers, and architects, the conference will explore topics such as the personal genome, brain visualization, generative architecture, and collective design. MIND08 is an opportunity to interact with the ideas and thinkers transforming our visual and intellectual landscape.”
