Design and the elastic mind: Paola Antonelli on

At the EG conference, MOMA design curator Paola Antonelli talks about her groundbreaking show, “Design and the Elastic Mind” — full of products, concepts and designs that reflect the elastic, multi-tasking, quickly shifting way we think now. Though the physical show has closed, the online home of the exhibit is quite lively and packed with amazement. (Recorded December 2007 in Los Angeles, California. Duration: 17:40.)
