Teresita Fernández’s As Above So Below

For more photos and videos from As Above So Below, follow @massmoca on Instagram.

Teresita Fernández (@teresitafz) created As Above So Below in response to the old factory space that houses the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (@massmoca) as well as the light that surrounds it. “The color in the works is meant to radiate a glowing light that changes with the tone of daylight pouring in through the windows of the space,” the artist says. “In many ways, the shapes and color of the works are like cinematic dissolves that seem ephemeral.”

The vivid colors and monumental scale of the works make them popular to photograph. “All of the works in the show deal with the idea of the viewer as a figure in the landscape,” Teresita says. “Visitors have captured that sensibility and played with that idea in their own photographs.”

As Above So Below is on view until March 2015.

This wonderful short film chronicles a day in the life of a printmaker – here’s to hoping it never ends up among this omnibus of bittersweet short films about obsolete occupations

Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly

To see more of Manon’s artfully captured images of #flyingstuff, follow @manonwethly.

For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”

“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”

These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”

But social media traps us in a tautological loop, in which we express ourselves to be ourselves to express ourselves, trying to claim better attention shares from the people we are ostensibly “connecting” with. Once we are trying to “win” the game of selfhood on the scoreboard of attention, any pretense of expressing an “inner truth” (which probably doesn’t exist anyway) about ourselves becomes lost in the rush to churn out content.
