BMoCA’s Spring 2017 Present Box features Megan Gafford’s site-specific installation titled Hemisphere, which transforms the windows of the museum into lenses that project constellation maps into the interior space. Gafford’s installation focuses on the cyclical nature of being, taking as its subject the constellations that are uniquely visible from BMoCA’s position on the globe. The study of the cosmos in both ancient and contemporary scientific thought has seen humankind frame myths, histories, and existential questions about life and death around the constellations. Gafford’s constellation projections embody this cyclical evolvement, producing a daily enactment as the sun travels from east to west, and clouds pass by; the light shifts and flickers across the walls in response to the environmental conditions.
