An Audio Tour of the Museum of Modern Art’s Dust #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

“At MoMA it’s literally an intermingling of different visitors from around the world,” says artist Nina Katchadourian of the MoMA dust, on her new “Dust Gathering” audio guide. You can listen to it with a MoMA audio guide device, on- or off-site via MoMA’s website, or through the museum’s mobile app. The piece was created through the Artists Experiment initiative of MoMA’s Department of Education.

 

Dust may be a conservator’s burden, but it’s also a positive mess for a museum. Because the more dust there is, the more visitors there are, and at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) they arrive in the millions each year, along with clothing fibers, skin flakes, and other dusty bits.

“The goal was to think about dust in both the highest and the lowest sense, as both a material that you had to contend with and get rid of, and in most the metaphorical and philosophical sense as a material that reminds us of our own mortality,” Katchadourian told Hyperallergic. “And people would touch on both of those no matter what their job.”
