“Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism,” Josiah McElheny, 2007, MFA Boston

“Crystal City” (a One-Shot Story)

Sometimes, a piece of art offers so many tempting ways to capture portions, parts and pieces! That’s how I reacted when I first encountered this stunning Josiah McElheny assemblage at Boston’s MFA in 2016. When I entered its room, it blew me away.

Titled “Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism,” its 24x93x93-inch internal cavity seemed to float within a huge mirrored cube. The cavity was mirrored too… and presented infinite reflections of the artist’s beautiful hand-blown vases, boxes, decanters and bottles. It was almost too much to take in, and I decided to turn a tiny portion of it into a “Crystal City” image.

However, when it rolled-out here in the US, it was not compatible with my mobile phone carrier, so I quickly moved it to the back of my mind. Well, those clever marketers at B&H Photo in NYC kept reminding me that I once had an interest in it, so I recently acquired one for $119 USD. For that kind of money I just had to try it!
