For Untitled, which was commissioned by the MCA in 2014, Daniel Boyd stuck 18,000 circular mirrored disks to a black wall in the museum’s entry foyer. Like stars scattered across the night sky used as ancient navigation maps, or subatomic particles comprising the dark matter of the universe, these reflecting dots point towards our incomplete understanding of time, space and memory.
