The MIT Museum Studio and Compton Gallery
Energy Lines, on view at The MIT Museum Studio and Compton Gallery, is the work of the class of STS.035 Exhibiting Science. Using contemporary technologies and subject matter, and inspired by the celebrated Centerbeam artwork, four remarkable installations aim to recast elements of its experience.
Centerbeam, a massive multimedia sculpture developed by MIT’s Center for Advanced Visual Studies in 1977, captivated visitors in Kassel, Germany, and subsequently when installed on the National Mall in Washington D.C. Bringing art, science and technology together, it featured laser projections, holograms, steam screens, neon video, and inflatable sculpture.
Energy Lines is the latest component of a campus-wide celebration of the 50th anniversary of the CAVS program.
