About CAST


The MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) was established in 2012 to facilitate opportunities for exchange and collaboration among artists, engineers, humanists and scientists. A joint initiative of the Office of the Provost, the School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) and the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS), the Center is committed to fostering a culture where the arts, science and technology thrive as interrelated, mutually informing modes of exploration, knowledge and discovery.

About the Symposium


Art, science, and technology are ways of knowing and changing the world.  These disciplines frequently draw from each other yet their devoted practitioners rarely have the opportunity for high-level intellectual and cultural exchange. The planned symposium, "Seeing / Sounding / Sensing," will be an intensive three-day event that will invite creative artists to join philosophers, cognitive neuroscientists, anthropologists, historians, and scholars from a range of disciplines in an open-ended discussion about knowledge production. The goal will be to challenge each domain's conventional certainty about "what is known," "how we know it," or "how we can know more," and to stimulate new issues for possible cross-disciplinary scholarship in the future.
