Upcoming Events
Frequent and varied events—such as lectures, colloquia, symposia, and workshops—play an active role in the continuing vitality and momentum of the Media Lab.
Jun 19 14 - Oct 31 14

Muriel Cooper, Marvin Minsky, Seymour Papert: each of these three pioneers defied convention, rejected norms, and adored the impossible. Marvin taught us how uncommon common sense was. Seymour forced us to think about thinking. And Muriel showed us that the medium was not the message. Without them, the Media Lab would never be what it became.

We invite you to explore a new public exhibit in the lobby of the Media Lab (75 Amherst Street, Cambridge MA) celebrating the work of these three unique minds, and their influence and impact upon the history of the Media Lab.

Neri Oxman

Neri Oxman combines breakthroughs in materials science (such as 3D printing) with design principles found in nature. Imagine a skyscraper made with concrete that can breathe and grow and “think,” or a chair that moves with your body. Buoyed by boundless enthusiasm, Oxman’s talks are ostensibly about what is possible when you mix art and science; but really they’re about possibility itself.
