Surrounded by Digitized Faces and Bodies is a collection of interactive installations that mirror visitors’ own images in unexpected ways. Using immersive sound, video recording, and projection, faces and bodies of gallery visitors become part of works which reflect the skepticism and irony of postmodern life. The artists use vivid optimism to urge viewers to look inside and befriend their inner selves.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
The Jerome B. Wiesner Student Art Gallery, established as a gift from the MIT Class of 1983, honors the former president of MIT, Jerome Wiesner, for his support of the arts at the Institute. Located on the second floor of the Stratton Student Center, the gallery was designed to be a place for students to exhibit their artistic endeavors, both academic and co-curricular.
The gallery was fully renovated in fall 2016, thanks in part to the generosity of Harold (1944) and Arlene Schnitzer and the Council for the Arts at MIT, and now also serves as a central meeting space for MIT Student Arts Programming including the START Studio, Creative Arts Competition, Student Arts Advisory Board and Arts Scholars.
The gallery is located in the MIT Student Center and is open 24 hours a day.
