Purpose

The exhibition, which was commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery and sponsored by Altria, looks at how design can be used as a methodology to address the problems inherent to our social, economic and political systems. The exhibit looks at the implementation of new ideas and technologies to address issues like environmental sustainability and poverty.

Installations

The exhibit was divided into eleven multimedia installations based on the following themes: urban, information, transportation, energy, images, markets, materials, manufacturing, military, health, wealth and politics. The displays included a genetically modified featherless chicken bred for tropical regions and a room made of garbage including discarded VHS tapes, computer keyboards, and dolls. The exhibit was on display at the Vancouver Art Gallery for three months from October 2, 2004 to January 3, 2005. From there, the exhibit went to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto for three months from March 11 to May 29, 2005. The exhibit was on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago from September 16, 2005 to December 31, 2006.

Other venues

The exhibition has also spawned a book written by the curator Bruce Mau, with Jennifer Leonard and the Institute without Boundaries, and a weekly electronic newsletter, and radio broadcast.
