Reckoning With Gravity

MassMoca is currently featuring a very cool exhibit in its massive gallery, Gravity is a Force to be Reckoned With, by Eph artist (and Bicentennial Medal winner) Inigo Manglano-Ovalle ’83.

You can watch numerous videos of Manglano-Orvalle discussing his work and his view on art at the PBS website.  One of his video installations is currently being exhibited at the WCMA.

Speaking of prominent artist alums, check out the latest work from Camille Utterback ’92.

Manglano-Ovalle’s technologically sophisticated sculptures and video installations use natural forms such as clouds, icebergs, and DNA as metaphors for understanding social issues such as immigration, gun violence, and human cloning. In collaboration with astrophysicists, meteorologists, and medical ethicists, Manglano-Ovalle harnesses extraterrestrial radio signals, weather patterns, and biological code, transforming pure data into digital video projections and sculptures realized through computer rendering.

This sounds like something I’d like to check out.

I am in absolute awe of the kind of work being done by artists like Manglano-Ovalle and Utterback. The scale, the technical aspect, the complexity of problem-solving required, and the courage to go forward with a project that entails so much cost and risk. Kudos to both of them for their awards. They deserve them.

Manglano-Ovalle is represented by a gallery with a fascinating stable of artists, one of whom is Tadao Ando, the architect of the Clark addition.
