Tinypass & The MIT Alumni Arts Exchange

Nov 25, 2014

Arts at MIT
Great content comes in all shapes and sizes, covering all manner of topics from all corners of the world. Just this week we had the privilege of providing access to a lecture and panel discussion involving modern conceptual art, a first for Tinypass. Arts at MIT’s Alumni Arts Exchange (AAX) explored artist Jeff Lieberman’s kinetic sculpture, Breaking Wave.  Lieberman, who has completed four degrees at MIT (Physics, Math, Mech. Eng., Media Arts + Sciences), explores the connections between the arts, sciences, education, creativity, and consciousness. You can get a taste for the visual impact of Breaking Wave here.

The event, held on November 20th, was only open to MIT alums but was live-streamed on the web by Redstar Union, which develops next-gen media around music and innovation, and broadcasts curated live performances to the web in real time HD.

The MIT Alumni Arts Exchange (AAx) is a global network of over 12,000 MIT alumni of all ages who are involved with and interested in the arts.  AAx hosts a series of events throughout the year centered around a special activity, theme or holiday. The mission of AAx is to provide a gathering space, either virtual or actual, for like-minded MIT alumni to learn about arts activities on the MIT campus, and the work that their fellow alumni artists are exhibiting or performing.  AAx was officially launched on March 13, 2014 – celebrating both Pi Day (3.14) and Albert Einstein’s birthday.
