Looking Outwards 7

For this week’s looking outwards I watched Paola Antonelli give the keynote address at Eyeo 2012.  She was born in Sardinia, Italy and is an author, editor, and curator.  She is also the Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).  I thought this address was very interesting because as she is a curator and author, she did not have her own work on display.  Instead she spoke about design as a whole with its evolution from problem solving to problem finding.  She also gave many examples of excellent design projects such as “green” bullets, digital urns, and Massoud Hassani’s “mine kafon” ( a device to clear minefields).  Antonelli is an excellent presenter as she spoke clearly with concise ideas and gave LOTS of examples.  I have many more people to look up now!
