7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Join Multiverse Concert Series for a unique STEAM evening of music and science inspired by the fractal patterns of nature—as revealed by the MIT Fluids Lab. The spontaneous growth of patterns happens throughout nature: from the fractal branches of fluids and river beds, to the living structures of our own lungs and blood vessels. Over the course of the evening, we will explore how nature gives rise to our complex world through mini-lectures by Irmgard Bischofberger of the MIT Fluids Lab, interwoven with live electrosymphonic music by Composer David Ibbett and visual art by Marlena Bocian-Hewitt. In addition—enthusiastic scientists at home will have the opportunity to create their own fractal patterns with household supplies! A list of supplies will be sent prior to the show. SCIENCE: Irmgard Bischofberger, MIT Fluids Lab COMPOSER: David Ibbett MUSIC: Minjin Chung, Cello ART: Marlena Bocian-Hewitt.
