Our weekend in the Berkshires was splendid! We rented a little house with some friends, went hiking, cooked great meals, drank wine and whiskey, and visited MASS Moca, a modern art museum in a converted factory in the Northern Berkshires. The space itself is worth a visit with its exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and industrial feel.
My favorite work was by Brooklyn artist Spencer Finch who explores how people perceive lights effect on an objectâ€™s color, the boundaries of the human field of vision, and the influence of language, memory, and the subconscious.
His works re-create specific light conditions experienced at a different place and time. Above are photos I took of two Spencer Finch installations, â€œSunlight In An Empty Room (Passing Cloud For Emily Dickinson, 2004)â€? and â€œCandlelight (2007)â€? at Mass Moca (hereâ€™s more info).
Below are some other pictures from the trip.
