The Digitized Museum and the Binge Breaker

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of October 9th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.


The Digitized Museum: Most changes to the attitudes and actions that define the museum experience have been catalyzed by visitors’ personal mobile devices, rather than by high-tech gallery infrastructure.

The Binge Breaker: Tristan Harris believes Silicon Valley is addicting us to our phones. He’s determined to make it stop.

The City Of The Future Is Already Here: In central Arizona there exists an experimental town called Arcosanti. It’s built on the principles of arcology, which combines architecture and ecology to envision a city that works in tandem with the Earth’s resources.

The Joy Of Reading Between Agnes Martin’s Lines: Her art is as abstract as abstract gets, yet her presence in it is palpable. So is her story, once you know how to read it.


FEND: The bicycle helmet that collapses to one third of its original size.

Thington: An AI for your home—that aims to bring the ‘Home of the Future’ to everyone, via the easiest possible interface: Conversation.

Duolingo’s Tutors: Users can text back and forth to practice a new language, giving learners an eternally patient, nonjudgmental, on-demand instructor all built on AI.


Olafur Eliasson On Process, Audiences, And His Latest Exhibition: Take a journey into the “objectless” approach of Olafur Eliasson in The parliament of possibilities, the acclaimed Danish-Icelandic installation artist and sculptor’s latest exhibition of new works and older favorites.

Designing Bon Iver’s 22, A Million: When I first started to see fragments of the artwork for Bon Iver’s new album, 22, a Million, I immediately recognized the hand of Eric Timothy Carlson, an artist and designer based in Brooklyn, originally from Minneapolis.

Art Deco Los Angeles: The architectural treasures scattered throughout the city are no skyscrapers, but they still soar.
