If you haven’t yet been to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary art (Mass MoCA) to see Prague-based artist Federico Diaz’s installation, Geometric Death Frequency – 141, now is your last chance! The enormous site-specific sculpture, which comments on data manipulation, cell growth, and the fluidity between mediums, is on view until March 18th. The work’s starting point was a photograph taken by the artist of the museum’s entry way, where the sculpture is now installed. As Mass MoCA’s press release states, ”the three-dimensional black spheres that make up this work are in some ways distant relatives of the pixels of that original, two-dimensional photograph, but instead of being transcribed into a flat image as micro dots of ink on paper, here they well up into great waves that crash against the very walls of their original subject matter”.
From South Station, take the Lake Shore Limited train towards Chicago Union Station, to the Pittsfield Transportation Center. Next, take the 1 Bus to North Adams. Mass MoCA is a six minute walk from the station. More information can be found at the Mass MoCA website.
