Artists’ Talk: Boston Coastline: Future Past

Saturday, January 06, 2018 at 2:00pm to 4:00pm

MIT Museum
265 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

Hear from artists Catherine D'Ignazio and Andi Sutton as they share insights on their installation Boston Coastline: Future Past, part of our Big Bang Data exhibition.

To fully convey the impact of rising sea levels on the Boston coastline D'Ignazio and Sutton created a “walking data visualization” that was performed in Boston in June 2015. Forty participants walked parts of a virtual coastline, wearing messages about their personal hopes, fears and grief for the future.

The artists will talk about their work at 2:30 and 3:30 p.m., and will also be available to answer questions from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Big Bang Data galleries.

Free with Museum admission.
