At the MoMA exhibition "Design and the Elastic Mind", the ringing message is that design matters. Ariel Ramchandani visits this "science fair on hallucinogens" and likes what she sees ...

"Design and the Elastic Mind" is not your parents' science fiction. No stark white backgrounds, Blade Runner fantasies or post-apocalyptic wastelands. It's no conventional art show either. This is a science fair on hallucinogens--an exuberant garage-sale grab-bag funhouse of the fictional future. It seems the MoMA's talented Paola Antonelli didn't curate as much as accumulate, with exhibits gathering round in choreographed entropy. Try not to blink under the neon glare--you might miss something.
This giant exhibition features upwards of 250 pieces, many of them interconnected. The exhibits are grouped thematically, so internet experiments are displayed together, as are installations that deal with human emotion. But the true organising principle of the show is, "the exploration of the relationship between design and science and the approach to scale...."
