You never know what you’re going to see when you go for a walk in a new city. In this case, it’s Cambridge, Mass., across the Charles River from downtown Boston (a separate city, but still part of greater Boston). You might come across a shop that sells nothing but pickles. Or a wild campus building designed by Frank Gehry (bottom of page). Or a boutique hotel where canine guests are treated like gold. And if you have time to explore a little more thoroughly, and venture inside, say, the MIT Museum, you’ll discover the wonderful world of kinetic sculpture, including the Arthur Ganson installation in the below video, “Machine with Wishbone” (1998, mixed media, chicken wishbone), which has a more naturalistic stride than a lot of people I know.
