This spring, a 30-pound hand-carved pink granite sculpture has come to MIT. The nomadic piece changes title according to its location, and is currently titled “I am Mit, as I am in Mit, just like a lot of other people are” with deliberate mis-capitalization. While here, the sculpture will be “hosted” by a different community member each week, who will fill out a lending card to record its travels. The work is part of Amalia Pica’s current exhibition at The List Visual Arts Center, and explores concepts of collective memory, participatory art, and interventions into public space.
