C is for Clamp • An art installation for the Boston Children’s Museum • 2013
This installation was part of An Alphabet of Inspiration: Artists Celebrate 100 Years of Collections, a feature of Boston Children’s Museum’s 100th Anniversary Celebration year. Two dozen guest curators—artists, designers, teams, and community partners—were invited to create an interior display window installation throughout the museum building on Boston's Fort Point Channel. Guest curators were asked to develop concepts incorporating a letter of the alphabet and highlighting objects from BCM’s extensive natural history, cultural, and historical collections.
Peter Agoos and Diane Fiedler partnered to submit a natural history concept, using the museum's large collection of eggshells. The submission was proposed to use for any of several letters: G is for Gently; O is for Ovum; E is for Egg; S is for Shell; etc. The curator asked us to use the letter C, and we installed C is for Clamp in a display window on the first floor, where it remains on view.
