MIT Museum

I adore the kinetic sculptures at the MIT museum...they're just so much fun!  (see here for more information on Arthur Ganson's gestural engineering works of art)



This is my favorite.  The viscosity of the oil dripping everywhere, it's just mesmerizing!

However, by far the most affecting exhibit at the Museum was the one about glaciers - the top picture was taken in 1921, and the bottom was taken in 2001.  What a difference 80 years makes.  Scary and sad.

There was also a photography exhibit of Joël Tettamanti - and I feel in love with these lovely photos of Greenland.  The colors of these little homes, they're like Lego painted ladies in the snow.
