MOMA - Design and the Elastic Mind

Last weekend I went to a fascinating exhibit at MOMA on "Design and the Elastic Mind." One part was all about information visualization. Perfect for the librarian or information geek. MOMA gives this description:

"We live in an age when information is more prolific and widely available than ever before, and to visualize it is to understand it. The projects in this category demonstrate the ways in which designers and scientists tackle the extremely small and the extremely large in order to bring them to a human scale, facilitating our ability to comprehend great amounts of data."
To sample some of the exhibits, try these links:
