Evolving the Visual World
by Natalia Ramirez
Our last (but never least) visit of the semester was with Paola Antonelli at MoMA, a brilliant and kind woman with whom we had a great conversation about art, design and their implications in contemporary culture. We browsed Never Alone, the recent exhibition on video game and interactive design throughout history, as well as a fascinating piece of digital art by Refik Anadol, who used AI technology to generate constantly evolving images rendered from the algorithm’s interpretation of the museum’s collection. It is always a pleasure to instruct our understanding of design with knowledge from related fields, and to meet the people who are directly involved in constantly evolving the visual world that surrounds us.
