Daytripping: Sol Lewitt IV



Let's try a couple of photos in which some helpful MassMOCA visitors agreed to stand and look at the Lewitt works.

Photographing the works with visitors in front gives these pieces a sense of scale. I'd like to know what the first piec is called. It looks a lot like a blank computer screen. :)

So nice pictures, I like to see people enjoying art!

The first one appears blank, and the second makes me dizzy! Interesting.

Kate said...

I really appreciate your photos of visual art and museums. Love them all, even if the art does not appeal to me personally. Is the line down the middle of the spectators back a reflection or part of the design of the jacket?

Fun shots. Of course, I would have loved hearing your approach to these nice people to appear in your photographs. Well done!

Lowell said...

Nah, the people didn't help. I think I'd wait outside. :)

Haha! I'm still enjoying your analogy re short blonde versus tall brunette or any combination therein from the last post Jack. Wonder how a 5ft 3inch blonde would fare!!

Sharon said...

That one on the bottom might make you a little dizzy if you stare at it too long.

Fascinating exhibit and terrific capture as always, Jack! It really does make a difference in ones perception when there are people included, I love it! Enjoy your week!!

Jack said...

@Kate, the lines on his jacket are shadows projected from the mullions of the windows behind him.

I don't like to be negative in comments, but really, I'm not attracted, sorry!

RedPat said...

Looks as if I am in the minority group that is enjoying this series. ;-))

Actually I like exhibit photos with people. The bottom one is very cool, not only because of the almost hypnotic panels but also for the shadows on the floor.

Okay... I really like your photos but I'm not a fan...

Halcyon said...

The lady staring at the blank one (first shot) gave me a chuckle! :)

Dianne said...

Colours and shapes .... Light and shade .... makes for interesting captures Jack.

Such nice pictures, I like especially the second one

Just caught up on all these. Looks a great place to explore. I do like some of the works. These black and white ones might have me falling on the floor rather than standing though. They look rather disorientating.

Michelle said...

Always nice to have cooperative subjects!

Madge Bloom said...

OH that black and while spiral, I think I would faint or get sick!

SRQ said...

Do you have a strong stomach? Vertigo might set for me looking at those swirls for any length of time.

The spectators seem to be part of the paintings. That top on is really fantastic

Linda said...

Great pictures! I'm afraid I'd get dizzy if I stood looking at that art for very long.

Stefan Jansson said...

Love the first scene. I'd be out of there in a few seconds time.

That's very dizzying!
