LIGHTS. by Jenny X. '13

pretty pretty

As you may or may not know by now, this past semester has been a flood of celebrations – all to commemorate MIT’s 150th year. These celebrations have been covered here and there on the blogs (Convocation, Public Art, special library archives, etc.)

Well I’m here to share some photos from this past weekend’s celebration – FAST Light (Festival of Art Science & Technology…and LIGHT!) All semester, professors, graduate students, researchers from the Department of Architecture, Urban Planning, Media Lab, and more have been filling up the campus with incredible installations showcasing the result of MIT’s technological prowess meshed with the most creative minds. It all culminated this weekend in the light festival all over campus. See a full list of installations here.

Without further ado, LIGHTS in the river!

(Those orbs in the river actually correspond to orbs on land. My friend and I are sitting on a land orb as it changes color.)

I have to say, I wish every year was MIT150.
