Over six months during the spring and summer of 2008, 65 artists and assistants took up residency in Building 7. They sharpened pencils, calculated curves, drafted lines, taped, painted, and scribbled in order to translate 105 of Sol LeWitt’s written instructions into wall drawings. During the course of the installation one of the drawing installers, Chris Cobb, photographed his coworkers. Some of those pictures were presented at MASS MoCA in a rotation. Taking advantage of the abundant natural light that floods the building, the images were made with no flash. The photographs are Lightjet prints on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper, a continuous tone dark room processing method using digital image source material instead of a film negative.
