Aligning himself with Buckminster Fuller’s notion of a comprehensivist, Carnegie Mellon industrial design student Nadeem Haidary is one to watch. His provocative forays into interaction design, anthropology and information visualization command fresh perspectives.
In his Food of Art exhibition in Pittsburgh he analyses the nutritional content of twelve celebrated still life artworks including pieces by Van Gogh and Cezanne.
