Artists, environmentalists, and sharing.
The Whitney Museum just kicked off an exciting new exhibit entitled “UNDERCURRENTS: Experimental Ecosystems in Recent Art” that will be occurring in various locations throughout the western shore of Manhattan, including The Kitchen, the High Line, the Little Red Lighthouse, and the North River Wastewater Treatment Plant, from May 27 until June 19.

“Ethical cohabitation—how to live together and how to be in the shared environment—is the problem that brings together the sociopolitical, cultural, and ecological within this exhibition. While ostensibly aiming to achieve harmonious balance, such relations are nevertheless inherently antagonistic and always unstable. In this context, how does one choose to act?”

June 3′s daily design idea is any design that you execute will have to share resources with its users, you, and the rest of the world. How can you use this awareness to bring a new ethical sensitivity to your design process?
