“Mens et Manus” – “Mind and Hands” – is the motto of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It perfectly describes the spirit of the MIT Glass Lab. Hosted by MIT’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the Glass Lab has existed for more than 40 years. It is a place where MIT students from a wide array of backgrounds in science and engineering learn the ancient art of glass blowing, working in teams and exploring artistic approaches to glass. Open to all members of the MIT community, the Glass Lab is fertile ground for the propagation of hybrid ideas. Mind and Hands is a celebration of artwork that illustrates the collision of art and science, made by Glass Lab students, instructors, and alumni.
