There’s no denying that presentation is part of product engineering these days, and that engineering plays a part in presentation. New York City’s Museum of Modern Art has gone past “not denying” and straight to “embracing” by adding five DIY electronics kits to their Humble Masterpieces collection.
This is not the first time MoMA has recognized smart design as a form of art in and of itself. Previous exhibits have recognized the simple genius of Post-It Notes and the artful execution of Chupa Chups lollipops. Just as art and beauty are part of the human condition, engineering and design have become an integral part of all facets of our lives.
