The New Fluidity in Design
@ San Jose Museum of Art


"Blobjects," those amoebic-shaped things that look like they were plucked straight out of a Flash Gordon comic book, have staked their curvaceous claim to modern architecture and to 21st century consumer product design. Driven by the decreasing cost and escalating power of hardware and software advances in prototyping and manufacturing, retro-futuristic blobjects have invaded every aspect of contemporary life from the tiny techno-blobject to skyscraper blobitecture.

The San Jose Museum of Art is welcoming one and all to engross themselves in liquidy creations and lots of smooth curves with their first-ever exhibition devoted to industrial design. See examples of amoebic things from the smallest scale to the largest, including the undulating Blobject Chair by artist Karim Rashid, foam-based Project Scorpion Military Armor from weapons manufacturers Crye Associates, and the oh-so-sexy Curvaceousness Motorcycle from customizer Cory Ness.

Blobjects & Beyond
@ the San Jose Museum of Art
Through Sunday, July 10th
