In the past few decades, individuals have experienced dramatic changes in some of the most established dimensions of human life: time, space, matter, and individuality. Working across several time zones, traveling with relative ease between satellite maps and nanoscale images, gleefully drowning in information, acting fast in order to preserve some slow downtime, people cope daily with dozens of changes in scale. Minds adapt and acquire enough elasticity to be able to synthesise such abundance. One of design’s most fundamental tasks is to stand between revolutions and life, and to help people deal with change. ‘Design and the Elastic Mind’ is a survey of the latest developments in the fields of art and design.

The exhibition highlights examples of successful translation of disruptive innovation, examples based on ongoing research, as well as reflections on the future responsibilities of design. Of particular interest will be the exploration of the relationship between design and science and the approach to scale. The exhibition includes objects, projects, and concepts offered by teams of artists, designers, scientists, and engineers from all over the world, ranging from the nanoscale to the cosmological scale. The exhibition features Troika's ‘SMS Guerilla Projector’.
