Exhibiting Science Student Kinetic Art
MIT Students in “Exhibiting Science” — a class in MIT’s Program in Science, Technology, and Society — created original works of kinetic art. Taught by MIT Museum Director John Durant and Museum Studio Co-Directors Seth Riskin and Allan Doyle, the theme of "Exhibiting Science" derived from the MIT Museum’s 5000 Moving Parts, an exhibition of kinetic sculptures featuring artists Anne Lilly, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, John Powers, Takis, and Arthur Ganson, in collaboration with sound artist Christina Campanella.

With the exhibition as inspiration, the students from the "Exhibiting Science" class created their own kinetic sculptures for display. Powers, Lilly, and Ganson mentored students as they embarked upon their mechanical creations, culminating in the rare opportunity for students to display their work for thousands of visitors.
