Shape Lab: At Moma

The concept behind Shape Lab a current exhibition at Moma is fantastic. Creating an interactive space where the visitors can experiment with the premise of the exhibition in real time is awesome. The exhibition runs through August 30th so if you have caught it yet go push around some blocks. I also love the connection made by Markus Reuter of better taste than sorry, which is between this exhibition and the idea of A Creative Wall where ideas and concepts can be visualized and hopefully clarified. He highlights some cool examples of this process in the post over at his site.
