Follow Through

Dec 1, 2005–Jan 29, 2006

Follow Through is a mobile, audio-visual artwork that has been created specifically for the Museum’s 5th Floor Permanent Collection galleries and is accessible to visitors on portable media players. The project is inspired by the discrepancy the artists found between the active and energetic art on view in the galleries and the rather passive and languid body language of museum visitors looking at that art. Referencing the structure of the existing audio tour, the artists invite visitors to engage in a set of exercises designed to bring well-established behavioral codes of museum attendance into relief. The project’s title has its roots in sports terminology where the term “follow-through” describes the act of carrying a motion — such as hitting a ball — to its natural completion. With Follow Through, the artists are inviting visitors to complete the dynamics of the artworks in an experience that goes beyond the mental act of contemplating or interpreting them.
