Gehry Christmas Tree in Stata Center

Location: Lobby of Stata center
Date: Around Christmas 2006 (from December 12, 2006 though February 2007)

For Chrismas 2006, a Christmas tree in the style of Frank Gehry appeared in the Stata Center. The tree had strange angles and was made of aluminum, cardboard, and other materials.

A sign below the tree claimed that it was part of an exhibit of hacks that the MIT Museum was displaying in the Stata Center at the time.

Up on its ledge, the tree was right at home amidst the Stata Center's odd angles and mirrored surfaces.

At the top of the tree was an Athena owl with a halo.

The ornaments included a metallic IHTFP, silver garlands, and other odd shapes and pointy spines.
