Opening at MASS MoCA

Two outdoor installations opening on October 23rd will knock your socks off! New exhibitions by Federico Diaz and Michael Oatman will challenge your sense of space and proportion in a dizzying fashion…  Diaz created a 50×20 foot sculpture,Geometric Death Frequency-141, from 420,000 black spheres precisely milled and assembled by robotic machines, filling MASS MoCA’s entrance courtyard with a fragmented wave seemingly caught between movement and stasis. Oatman’s The Shining is a 1970s-era ‘satellite’ that has crash-landed at MASS MoCA in the form of a repurposed Airstream trailer – with large parachutes and active solar panels – inspired by an earlier era of pulp aeronauts like Buck Rogers, Tom Swift and Tom Corbett: Space Cadet, as well as the works of Giotto, Jules Verne, NASA, and Chris Marker’s 1962 film La Jetée. You’ll be allowed to climb a staircase and enter into the craft… and that’s where the fun begins! I won’t give it away – go see for yourself!
