Models are simplified reflections of reality. They help us test ideas, theories or patterns we believe we have observed in the world. Models are constrained and they never perfectly or exactly capture reality. Models are a form of compression. We make models to clarify as well as imagine. They help us focus on what we believe are the essential drivers or elements of the phenomena we are interested in. In this exhibition we include social as well as scientific models. Some models have been chosen for their predictive or explanatory capabilities. Other models fail to reflect reality, but in their divergence from the world as it actually is, they open up the imagination to entirely new possibilities and realities.
