Media Lab 30th Anniversary | Overview

On October 30, 2015, the Media Lab marked its 30th anniversary with a day-long symposium, Mind, Magic & Mischief at Kresge Auditorium, 48 Massachusetts Avenue, on the MIT campus in Cambridge.

Archived video of the event is available.

Hosted by magicians Penn & Teller, the event celebrated the Lab’s roots as a Salon des Refusés, engaging a distinguished roster of speakers who presented on topics emblematic of the Lab’s history: creative, contrarian, and counter-intuitive, with humanitarian, artistic, scientific, and social purposes.
