Botanicalls in MoMA’s “This is for Everyone” Exhibition
We are pleased that Botanicalls was not simplyÂ acquired byÂ the Museum of Modern Art but is alsoÂ being presented in aÂ new exhibition called “This is for Everyone:Â Design Experiments for the Common Good” running through January 31, 2016.
Here’s aÂ description of the show:
“This exhibition takes its title from the Twitter message that British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the World Wide Web) used to light up the stadium at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremonies. His buoyant tweet highlighted the way that the Internetâ€”perhaps the most radical social design experiment of the last quarter centuryâ€”has created limitless possibilities for the discovery, sharing, and expansion of knowledge and information. As we revel in this abundant possibility, we sometimes forget that new technologies are not inherently democratic. Is design in the digital ageâ€”so often simply assumed to be for the greater goodâ€”truly for everyone? From initial exploratory experiments to complex, and often contested, hybrid digital-analog states, all the way to â€œuniversalâ€ designs,Â This Is for EveryoneÂ explores this question with works from MoMAâ€™s collection that celebrate the promiseâ€”and occasional flipsideâ€”of contemporary design.”
