Actions of MIT’s 15th president have ‘grown to inspire generations,’ Reif says.
Kinetic sculpture, robots, computer graphics and games, interactive installations and digital audio are among the many forms of technological art featured in "Collision 5, The Next Dimension," a hands-on, minds-on exhibition opening at the Compton Gallery (Room 10-150) on Friday, April 26. "Collision 5" brings the art closer to viewers, stimulating them to touch, affect and experience the works. A celebration with the artists will be held on Saturday, April 27 from 1 to 8 p.m. The show, part of the 2003 Boston Cyberarts Festival, will be on view through May 11. Gallery hours are weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 1 to 5 p.m.
