Kim Bernard’s solo show Motion and Matter at the Harvard Ed Portal’s Crossings Gallery is a celebration of repurposed, reimagined, and recycled materials fashioned into pieces as thought-provoking as they are whimsical. The installation features kinetic sculptures made of balls and springs and hyperbolic planes crocheted out of used bicycle inner tubes. Bernard, who is the Artist-in-Residence at the Harvard Physics Department, says the exhibition “provides a tangible way of seeing physics,” and the works on display are influenced by her research, experimentation, and collaboration with faculty during her time on campus.
