Hanging at MoMA consists of 18 photo panels portraying museumgoers in a corner of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where an Alexander Calder mobile hangs from the ceiling. All the images were taken from the same point of view, the only variable being the people passing by or hanging out by Calder's mobile.
My inspiration for this work was the museumgoers themselves - how they interact with the art and the ways they become part of the museum aesthetic. Inspired by Calder's mobile, I chose a playful 3d format to explore the notion of museumgoers as pieces of art.
This project was initially funded by an Emerging Artist Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
