"Mixed Media” examines how representations of text and sound that have shaped our perceptions of the material world, tracing the technologies used to replicate and transmit them. The exhibition features rare artifacts that illuminate 500 years of inventions that record and distribute information—from movable cast metal type to Edison’s model wax cylinder-playing gramophone.
