SAFE

I don’t need art to be work-related. In fact, I generally prefer that it’s not. But there’s an exhibition at MOMA called SAFE: Design Takes On Risk, that looks pretty cool. Items range from practical (chairs with well-placed hooks to hide a purse) to pseudo-practical (suitcase-like containers to keep bananas from getting bruised) to borderline neurotic (slip-on fork covers). And earplugs. Lots of earplugs. For those who don’t live in the city or just don’t want to shell out the $20 entrance fee, there’s an online exhibition: http://moma.org/exhibitions/2005/safe/.
