National Design Triennial: Why Design Now?

One of my favorite exhibits at one of my favorite museums is opening in May.  The National Design Triennial (the exhibit happens every 3 years) opens May 14th at the Cooper-Hewitt!  I love this exhibit because it pulls from all different areas of design - be it architecture, web design, or even fashion design. This year, the focus will be on projects addressing human and environmental problems.

This was my favorite exhibit from the 2006 Triennial.  It was a virtual reality game called SnowWorld that used visual images and music to cause certain triggers in the brain.  These triggers would help relieve the pain of severe burn victims.  Absolutely AMAZING!
