Gemini was designed by Neri Oxman, Architect, Designer and Professor of Media, Arts and Science at MIT Lab, in collaboration with Professor W. Craig Carter, Department of Materials Science and Engineering of MIT for the Vocal Vibrations exhibit which explores the relationship between human physiology-chemical phenomena in both body and sound vibrations, via unique design elements.
