Endlessly Repeating Twentieth-Century Modernism (Artist: Josiah McElheny) on Flickr.
From the wall of the MFA: “McElheny hand-blew the dozens of glass vessels in this perfectly machined, mirrored box. Their glinting reflections recede in an infinitely repeating pattern. The work is inspired by an enclosed and completely reflective world of pure form imagined by architect Buckminster Fuller and sculptor Isamu Noguchi in 1929. By crafting a version of their idea, McElheny revelas what a world purged of human presence and individuality looks like. Though brimming with beautiful objects, it is a place apart, devoid of life.”
Even without a message behind this, this is a pretty cool craft. But I like that the message is “We need new ideas.” Beacause 90% of modern art blows walruses.
