Invisible Cities at MASS MoCA with Susan Cross

by on May 1, 2012

April 24th our Visual Studies class took a trip to MASS MoCa where we got a tour of the new Invisible Cities exhibit. The show displayed works by 10 different artists whose pieces raged from sculpture, wallpaper, and painting to soap, sound, and video. This artist, Sopheap Pich, works with bamboo to create interchangeable components that form a woven city. The pieces have been displayed several times but the arrangement is never the same. The bamboo, which is softened with water, is molded, woven, and tied together by him and his family in  Cambodia. The individual sections reminded me of bird cages, which gives a whimsical feel to an urban concept.
