Tom Sachs: Cameras

Sculptor Tom Sachs has expanded his recreations of cultural artifacts to include that aura-capturing icon of the modern age, the camera. "The exhibition includes the earliest existing work by the artist, a clay replica of a Nikon SLR camera that Sachs made when he was eight years old as a gift to his father. This contrasts with his recent elegy to the now-defunct Polaroid Corporation: a fully functional 'instant' camera that has been cobbled together out of (among other things) a Canon digital camera, a tiny HP inkjet printer, and a battery from a Makita cordless drill."
