What the hell?
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.
