CONSULTING PLANNERS OF MASSACHUSETTS
Expertise for Communities
Boston Cyberarts Gallery usually leans toward the future. In this exhibition, curators Mark Favermann, Keaton Fox, and George Fifield look to technologies of yesteryear, spotlighting contemporary works in art and design intended to provoke marvel, which are mechanical or animated by natural phenomena such as gravity and wind.
Through Feb. 16. Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St., Jamaica Plain. 617-524-2109, www.bostoncyberarts.org

It often does so in spite of attempts by the government itself to shut these services down."
