Federico Díaz: Post-Human Sculpture
by Christine Temin

It looks like a giant black tsunami crashing headlong into the wall of the building. Does this mean that the creator of said wave, Federico Díaz, has something against the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art? His response to this question, like many others, isn’t a simple “yes” or “no.” Díaz is evasive when confronted with a direct query—he’d make a great politician. Joseph Thompson, the director of MASS MoCA, says that Díaz is “a philosopher as much as anything else.”
