The inaugural show, open through March, features works by MIT Media Labs Neri Oxman and Tod Machover, who explore how hearing familiar voices influences mental and physical health.

Exposing the tiny seeds in the piles of refuse was not easy: For the first time strict and fine excavation methods were used during the dig that included fine sifting and flotation of botanical remains, which float after the soil settles. These methods made it possible to extract the botanical finding from the Byzantine material.
