ICA, Boston. July, 2016

I first saw this cube made of pins by artist Tara Donovan when Dr. B and I visited the Institute of Contemporary Art as part of our 2008 "staycation." We were told that the pins that made up this approx 4-foot x 4-foot x 4-foot structure "held themselves in place." How could that be? This time, visiting the ICA with my friend Patti recently, we got a guard to allow that "the artist is very secretive about her process." Maybe next time we'll hear that there is an internal support of some kind, maybe something magnetic. (Click on this link to see another of Donovan's creations.)
