century of the child: new york

photo by: Rusty Darbonne What: Century of the Child, Growing by Design 1900-2000
When: July 29 thru November 5
Where: MoMA

Many of the concepts and display pieces in MoMA’s ambitious exhibit of 20th century design for children are everyday, like breathing we don’t typically give them a second thought.

But at some point, designers did—hence the first large-scale overview of progressive design thinking on children and their development.

From children’s nurseries, furniture, and clothing to school architecture, playgrounds, amusement rides, toys, games and books—all of these and more have affected how children live, learn and play over the past century and will be featured within seven in-depth sections.

a klingon christmas carol: chicago

photo by: Scott PakudaitisWhat: A Klingon Christmas Carol
When: now thru December 31
Where: The Greenhouse Theater Center

The timeless story of Scrooge being visited by three ghosts in the hours before Christmas morning is told as only Dr. Spock could—in klingon*.

Needless to say, it’s equal parts theater, performance art—and a new holiday tradition.

*with English supertitles and narrative analysis from The Vulcan Institute of Cultural Anthropology.

giving thanks: steve jobs

photo by: justj0000lieEveryday, in so many ways, we are thankful for the visionary work of Steve Jobs.

From the first Macs, to the latest iPods, iPads, and iPhones—each one a beautiful design inside and out. From user friendly click-and-drag functions, to the simplest, most refined hardware and elegant packaging.

The way we work, play, live—and think—will forever be different.
