MASS MoCA, one of the world’s largest centers for contemporary visual arts, will be showing Frederic Diaz’s ‘Geometric Death Frequency—141’, a sculpture made from 420,000 black spheres made and assembled by robotics. The final sculpture will measure 20 feet by 50 feet and sit in the courtyard of the museum. The installation is precisely crafted from robotics, milling and assembling the entire sculpture sphere by sphere, completely void of any human interaction. Diaz developed this process for building on his own using CAD software and manufacturing techniques along with pure data and algorithms based on particle physics.
