Spencer Finch on Back to Kansas

Artist Spencer Finch describes his installation Back to Kansas, a work that explores the subjective perception of color, particularly in the fading light between sunset and dusk. Set up to mimic a film screen, the work draws its title and color palette from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

Back to Kansas was commissioned by SFMOMA for Project Los Altos: SFMOMA in Silicon Valley, on view November 9, 2013 - March 2, 2014.
