Abstract

The art of Mac Adams uses photography, sculpture, and installations.

His sculpture The Moth is in the permanent Art on Campus Collection with its site specific installation outside Coover Hall and the Department of Computer Engineering. The Moth is an organic form that interacts with the natural surroundings. As the focal point of the sculpture, the image of the moth is created through the negative forms of three marble slabs. The viewer has to find the optimum spatial position for the shape of a moth trapped in the square to visually form. The void of a moth is designed to respond to varying light conditions. Each of the three forms exist as independent structures and only connect when the viewer is in the optimum position.
