Described as an “electronic pilot project,” the website for 1995’s "Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design" was MoMA’s first foray into the Internet. Organized by Paola Antonelli, now senior curator in the Department of Architecture and Design, the exhibition was a survey of experiments in material design and usage in contemporary industrial design, from innovative applications of traditional materials to the development of compound materials. "Mutant Materials" included some 200 forward-thinking designs developed within the previous decade, from swimming fins made from liquid resin to ceramic turbine rotors. The exhibition website, which predated by a year, was created by Antonelli, who taught herself code in order to develop it. Over the past 20 years, MoMA has created more than 200 websites for specific projects; they are collected in an archive created by the New York Art Resources Consortium to document and preserve online art-related projects. MoMA’s websites can be found at

“What if you were to assume that you’re being constantly recorded, which in our contemporary moment of widespread surveillance is more or less true? You could say that there’s just a giant film production happening at all times. What happens to you and your being or identity within that reality?”
