editor's notes

This week we talk about Paola Antonelli. A very important figure in today's art, design and architecture world (and in our guru section as well). 

She is currently the Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture & Design as well as the Director of R&D (Research & Development) at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City.

Her objective is “to change the perception of design, making sure that people are aware of the importance of design in everyday life. Without design, innovation would be futile, because no one would be able to use any new inventions.” (source Wikipedia).

She responsible for immortalizing such icons as Pac-Man, the "@" symbol, and Björk's Biophilia app in the museum's archives.

Here an article with some of her thoughts on curating, MoMA and design in general.
