The Metabolic Studio/Optics Division Building 6 Portrait: Exterior

  • Exhibition

  • On view May 28
  • MASS MoCA

The Optics Division of the Metabolic Studio spent a week at MASS MoCA, using its mobile pinhole camera and darkroom fashioned in a sea container to create a series of portraits of Building 6. The artists collected water samples from the Hoosic River, which were then poured over the paper during printing, imbuing the image with ripples of river water. The name “Hoosic” is derived from the Native Algonquian meaning “The Beyond Place.”
