Beginning May 31 through July 31, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) will be featuring a dynamic 3-D photography exhibit that explores the human eye and features highly detailed images that are captured through state-of-the-art medical photography equipment by Kenneth Thompson. This Atlanta-based, award-winning ophthalmic photographer has photographed more than 100,000 patients throughout his 35-year career.
On June 10, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) will host an award-winning 3,500 sq. ft. hands-on interactive exhibition that will be on display through September 11, 2016. Great Balls of Fire explores recent discoveries and cutting-edge planetary science. Asteroids and comets are messengers from space that have had a significant effect on Earth’s history and are likely to influence the future as well. Great Balls of Fire was developed by the Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning, with funding from the National Science Foundation and NASA.
While Asteroids and comets are popular subjects for movies like Armageddon and Deep Impact, they are also playing their starring roles in NASA research. Read more »

“We live in world where our everyday experience is augmented by technology. Almost everything has been affected by the computer and the microprocessor. Developments in Science have led to the invention of the many computerized devices that we have integrated into our daily routines. The most obvious example is the cell phone, but almost everything seems to have a chip inside it these days. And there are other technologies that don’t seem related to the word “technology,” older tools that extend what the human body can do that are still in use. Some of these tools have also been augmented by the computer. Human beings have always used tools to create – to survive and as time has progressed technology seems to have merged into our lives more than ever before, i.e. – wearable technology, virtual reality, augmented reality, immersive environments, 3d printers, laser cutters, etc.. This show takes a broad approach to what constitutes the idea of an augmented life in 2016 and seeks to survey the low tech and high tech ways in which artists are reflecting and riffing on the present through the use of various technologies to create art. Augmented takes a look at contemporary artists who are exploring these ideas through their own processes that alter material surfaces with technology. The works in the show respond directly or stand as metaphors for how technology alters the surface of our contemporary experience.”
