Chris Doyle: The Coast of Industry


June 9 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm on Sundays and Mondays and Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays

MASS MoCA alumni artist Chris Doyle’s work highlights the precarious moments we face in attempting to care for the natural world, resulting in narratives built around themes of interconnectivity and the tension between the individual — and the group — in a culture fiercely devoted to progress. His video animation, The Coast of Industry runs nearly 300 feet along one wall of Building 5, like a vast panoramic scroll. The Coast of Industry is inhabited by a family of machines that have learned to work together in concert with the natural world in loops of perpetual labor. Like organs of a body, the machines are interconnected and each has a discrete function that contributes to the life of the larger organism. For the machines, repetition has a calming effect, and though it doesn’t expand, the system thrives.
Chris Doyle has a new exhibit coming to Mass Moca
