Illuminated Things

This temporary art installation has been outside of the Museum of Contemporary Art since last June, and Jesus and I were fortunate enough to see it on its last day of display on Sunday. The public art project itself, The Character and Shape of Illuminated Things, is now onto its final phase: photography and social sharing. The artist, Amanda Ross-Ho, asked viewers to take their own pictures of her installment and post them online, with the tag #illuminatedthings. She wants to share these photos as a way to make viewers think about public information--though the installation itself is simple, just three basic forms colored gray, plus a color palette, no one photo will be the same, thanks to shifting outdoor light, the multitude of angles available, and viewers' own photo edits (cropping, filters, light exposure).

My contribution to the project, an Instagram photo.
