Diastrofismos is a sound installation with a modular system that sends images through rhythmic patterns. The installation changes depending on its context. The last version was done in the context of the Media Arts Bienal in Santiago, Chile, where it was built on a set of debris from the Alto Río building that was destroyed by the 27F earthquake in 2010 in Chile. For this occasion, the piece is built with the detritus of MIT, where the production of things is extremely fast, the landscape is in a constant shift, and there is constant tension between the new and the obsolete, the future and the past.
The February School
MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology graduate students set up a temporary school as an intervention into the nested ecosystem of education at MIT. This school is a subsystem of education where students and the general public are invited to participate in ACT student-led classes, cinema cycles, exhibitions, discussions, conferences, fellowship, workshops, construction and celebrations throughout the month of February. The intervention uses the structures and conventions of a typical university to explore other ways of learning, sharing and building knowledge and community.
This student-organized exhibition is part of ACT’s year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the internationally renowned MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS). You can read more about the anniversary festivities on the ACT website.

Success and Failure
A group show curated by Kate Weishaar, Architecture ’18.
The pressures of MIT have a tendency to distort students’ definitions of “success” and “failure”. Faced with the high expectations of family and friends and the high standards set by highly successful peers, many MIT students self-identify as failures. This show, composed of art from several current undergraduate students, shares a few student definitions of “success” and “failure”, while challenging viewers to redefine these words for themselves.
An exhibition of selected works by the Schnitzer Prize winners—Ani Liu, Angel Chen, Jessica Rinland, Anne Graziano and Edwina Portocarrero.
MIT in Flight + briar
MIT In Flight is a photographic project created by Landon Carter to explore the fleeting moment of a leap, the twist of a ribbon and the beauty of traditional Chinese dance at MIT. Featuring dancers from the MIT Asian Dance Team, lighting collaboration with Jake Gunter, and assistance from Rachel Wu. Funded in part by a Director’s Grant from the Council for the Arts at MIT.
briar is a small pavilion intended to evoke a sense of comfort, curiosity and wonder created by Katherine Paseman and Maxine Beeman.
February – March, 2017
The inaugural exhibition in the newly renovated space features work from twenty Art Scholars that they made at MIT—including video, sound art, photography, painting, drawing and performance.
November 2016-January 2017
An exhibition of selected works by the Schnitzer Prize winners—Joshuah Jest, Emily Tow, Laura Perovich, Chris Kerich, Qiuying Lai, Deniz Tortum.
What happens when we make circuits for self-expression? This exhibition featured interactive creations by artists and engineers to explore this question.
Visiting Artist Keith Ellenbogen and theoretical physicist Allan Adams created and co-taught “Underwater Conservation Photography,” a cross-disciplinary course. The class spent several intensive weeks in the MIT pool honing their diving and photography skills and testing equipment and techniques, before heading to the Wildlife Conservation Society on Glover’s Reef off the coast of Belize. They documented damselfish, parrotfish, seafans, Christmas tree worms, sponges and eels, among other creatures, and then exhibited their photographs in the Wiesner Gallery, accompanied by text explaining the technological, biological and ecological stories behind the images.
