Cool MoMA Exhibit

MoMA has a new exhibit called "SAFE: Design Takes On Risk" all about designs of products to protect the body from danger and stress. Guess which Giant Microbes (and insect) made it into the exhibit?

Cool site, though it is a trick question since two giantmicrobes are shown .

I think it is kind of neutral, but I could be wrong. If it were anti then I would be mad.

I agree. How could someone discriminate something so cute and educational?

I think the exhibit was more or less unprejudiced.
Still I think the whole exhibition was about "concern about dangers everywhere", so they didn't quite get the "fun" point about the thing here...

The fun is the fact that we get it and they don't and the funny looks they give us !
