Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Renée Green’s Pacing residency continues with a summer installation of Media Bichos: Wavelinks in CCVA’s Level 1 Gallery space.
Designed as viewing stations for MoMA's media collection, Media Bichos were conceived as an intermediary modular system that can exist in expandable and contractible forms, functioning as an intermediating structure and space altering device. Each Media Bicho structure is constituted by panels of wooden frames, cladded with varied textiles; the panels are especially hinged to allow innumerable possibilities of shape, arrangement and color configurations.
In its first Pacing iteration, Media Bichos: Wavelinks will be deployed in Le Corbusier’s Carpenter Center lobby to showcase Green’s Wavelinks (2002), a series of seven videos which explore and examine the many relations people have to sound and electronic music, combining thematic narratives with a subjective circuitous story.
Following a trajectory that has run through most of the work Green has produced, Media Bichos continue an exploration of forms of relation to spaces and locations that can be traversed and temporarily inhabited, as well as the kinds of experiences that can take place in these.
