If you were wondering what the hell this big sculpture thingymajingy on LaGuardia was check out Buckminster Fuller’s exhibit, “Starting with the Universe” opening tomorrow at the Whitney. Here’s a bit from the press release:

One of the great American visionaries of the twentieth century, R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) endeavored to see what he, a single individual, might do to benefit the largest segment of humanity while consuming the minimum of the earth’s resources. Doing “more with less” was Fuller’s credo. He described himself as a “comprehensive anticipatory design scientist,” setting forth to solve the escalating challenges that faced humanity before they became insurmountable.
