He has inspired many to think outside of the box or inside the dome? Above all he was a inventor that inspired artist which makes me question why he has a exhibition in a fine art museum? What makes his work art to be museum worthy? Why is in not just theoretical architecture, very few of his ideas made it into production. Due to the fact that he refused for production to start after accepting orders because he was not convinced that the design was perfect, the lack of materials and also the lack of acceptance from the general public as a norm for is advanced designs. So why an Art Museum and not a science or history museum? Is it because he has influenced so many artist and only a few scientists. That's were this weeks reading by Elizabeth A.T. Smith is lacking she skims over the top of the subject Fuller himself spouting out a bunch of names of artist and writers with little description to n
one of their work. She does little to talk about Fuller's own work except to name some of his concepts. I am interested to see the exhibit at the MCA this week hopefully it will give me a greater depth of his inspiration.
