The MIT student art group ATat, Arts and Technology at tech, was founded in 2001 to host events showcasing art that incorporates technology. Its first three events have shown the art and performance of over forty MIT and Boston-area artists. These events have seen people of all ages engaged in interactive robotic art, exploring laser lighted spaces, shaking their heads at LED sculptures, listening and dancing to live electronic music and generally having a good time while being introduced to the future of art. Ages 5 to 65 have been represented in the previous audiences --- there's something for everyone.
