MoMA curator, Paola Antonelli does it again:
‘ 21st-century culture is centered on interaction:  “I communicate, therefore I am” is the defining affirmation of  contemporary existence, and objects and systems that were once charged  only with formal elegance and functional soundness are now also expected  to have personalities… Talk to Me explores this new terrain, featuring a variety of designs that enhance  communicative possibilities and embody a new balance between technology  and people.’

High praise for this year’s best pavilions at la Biennale di Venezia, which shone under the curatorship of SANAA’s Kazuyo Sejima. I especially like the concept for Olafur Eliasson’s ‘Your Split Second House’ which creates forms with mist and water splashes. They inspire the imagination with structures that barely take form before vanishing.

Also, check out the wearable work of Marta Lwin using epithelial cells, Episkin…
