I've been teasing for long enough, and feel its time to show some pictures from the Sustainable Futures exhibition at the Design Museum.
I was delighted when my periodic table of Endangered Elements was included as an exhibit. I talked about the background of this in my last post and the resource can be found here: http://bit.ly/c7ewNz
Nearly every time I present using the slide I get a request for a copy, particularly from designers, so it was perhaps time for it to go public.
As may be clear, I had sent both the old version (that most had seen) and a recently updated one which took in a wider variety of information sources and tried to apply a RAG status. They displayed both. I have to admit, it was quite a thrill to see designers studying it with such interest.
The exhibition displayed new ideas from the sustainable design community interspersed with 'issue' exhibits along the lines of the periodic table. I really liked the one on embedded water content:
I suggest you go see for yourself. The exhibition is on until September: http://designmuseum.org/exhibitions/2010/sustainable-futures
My thanks also to Amy Peace at Chemicals Northwest who has also blogged on this issue: http://bit.ly/dlolfj
