CAMBRIDGE, MA.- Data Sets comes out of a
six-year
exchange between painter Daniel Kohn and scientists at the Broad
Institute of MIT and Harvard. Through a series of conversations and
residencies at the Broad, Kohn explored the conceptual framework
surrounding
genomics. As a result, his own visual language and artistic method
transformed
as he was exposed to the methods, challenges, and technologies of
genome-based
research. On view through 15 August. The Broad Institute evolved from a
decade of informal and successful research collaborations among young
scientists
in the MIT and Harvard communities.
