From the Ted Talk by Paola Antonelli: Design and the Elastic Mind

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Paul Steinhardt, a physicist from New York, and Aranda/Lasch, architects, collaborated in an isolltianatn in London at the snpntrieee. And it's really iernnestitg to see how this happens. The exhibition will talk about the work of both designers and sntcetisis, and show how they're presenting the possibilities of the future to us. I'm showing to you different sections of the show right now, just to give you a taste of it. nioachspyns and nanotechnology, for instance, have really opened the designer's mind. In this case I'm sohniwg more the designers' work, because they're the ones that have really been stimulated. A lot of the objects in the show are concepts, not objects that exist already. But what you're looking at here is the work of some scientists from UCLA. This kind of ahlpabet soup is a new way to mark proteins — not only by color but literally by alphabet letters. So they construct it, and they can construct all kinds of forms

Original Text

Paul Steinhardt, a physicist from New York, and Aranda/Lasch, architects, collaborated in an installation in London at the Serpentine. And it's really interesting to see how this happens. The exhibition will talk about the work of both designers and scientists, and show how they're presenting the possibilities of the future to us. I'm showing to you different sections of the show right now, just to give you a taste of it. Nanophysics and nanotechnology, for instance, have really opened the designer's mind. In this case I'm showing more the designers' work, because they're the ones that have really been stimulated. A lot of the objects in the show are concepts, not objects that exist already. But what you're looking at here is the work of some scientists from UCLA. This kind of alphabet soup is a new way to mark proteins — not only by color but literally by alphabet letters. So they construct it, and they can construct all kinds of forms
