Tech Tuesday: Designed and produced by Drexel University, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Physics at the Art Museum is a new iPad app that uses artworks to explain physics concepts. To demonstrate the concept of torque - the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis - the app shows Ghost (1964), a hanging mobile by Alexander Calder. A great educational tool that showcases the scientific skill of the artist, Physics at the Art Museum is presented by Subaru and free to download on any iPad.
Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention, the inaugural exhibition at Pace Menlo Park’s pop-up gallery space, is on view at 300 El Camino Real in Menlo Park, CA, from April 16 through May 13, 2014.
