After hearing and posting about MoMA’s Design and the Elastic Mind exhibit, it had to be seen. Apparently the rest of New York City felt the same way on the day of the close. When you could get around the crowds, there were many great pieces to gawk at, but the most memorable part of the exhibit was also the most experiential — the Shadow Monsters. With a projector and software your shadows underwent metamorphosis and grew animal hair, teeth and fins, all with accompanying sound effects. It was fun to play with or just watch, except for this one guy who took up the room for two minutes to show off his lame hand puppetry. Way to go, Gepetto.
