Massive Change

Photo: NOT the MCA

I was in Chicago this past weekend to be with some old friends and to part take in the Halloween festivities (I was a rain cloud, by the way). I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Chicago and if any of you are planning on going to chi-town definitely pay a visit because they have a great exhibit called Massive Change . I was taken aback by so many of the things I saw there. The exhibit is set-up with special attention to the smallest details. It shows how far humanity has come being more environmentally / socially responsible (massive change) over the years and where we need to go in order to survive the future. There are three sections to the floor plan; Massive Change in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Massive Change in the City and Masssive Change in the world.
One wall of the exhibit had a huge thermal map of to world that shows the solar quotient of all the countries. Interestingly enough, the majority of the poorest countries in the world get the most sun. They had a proposal for incorporating solar power in those countries and how helpful it could be. They also had a room that showed the evolution of the Segway. There were hundreds of other things at this museum but I should leave some of them for you to discover for yourself.
