The MIT Museum presents Wen-Ying Tsai's 1970 work Cybernetic Sculpture #301. Tsai was a Fellow at MIT's Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS), where the work was created, from 1969-71. This sculpture is part of a small collection of historically important kinetic works created at CAVS and in the collection of the MIT Museum.  The MIT Museum is also home to the ongoing exhibition, Arthur Ganson: Gestural Engineering, a well-loved display of his kinetic sculptures, which have been on view since 1995.
