Photos: HUBweek is basically a tech and art dreamscape

 

Massive shipping containers covered in murals are just a few of the many intriguing sights at HUBweek, the six-day “festival of the future” that focuses on innovation in art, technology, and science.

Visitors flocking to the wide-ranging festival (co-founded by The Boston Globe, which shares ownership with Boston.com) have danced at a silent disco, watched mesmerizing GIF-iti, and sat in on scores of wide-ranging talks and presentations.

Below, take a look at just some of the art and technology at the festival:
