Panel Discussions & Symposia

MIND Design + Science

Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

Presented by MoMA and Seed, in collaboration with Parsons The New School for Design.

Collaboration between science and design is yielding a radical new way of visualizing, understanding, and manipulating the natural world. MIND is a two-day conference, inspired by MoMA’s Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition, which aims to catalyze this convergence. Bringing together an eclectic group of speakers and participants, including leading scientists, designers, and architects, the conference explores topics such as the personal genome, brain visualization, generative architecture, and collective design. MIND is an opportunity to interact with the ideas and thinkers transforming our visual and intellectual landscape. The keynote address on Thursday evening features Peter Galison, Joseph Pellegrino University Professor, History of Science Department, Harvard University; and Henry Markram, Director Blue Brain Project, and Founder and Codirector, Brain Mind Institute.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Design and the Elastic Mind
