Gabriel Orozco Discusses How Throwing Boomering Inspired His Guggenheim Installation

On view at the Guggenheim through January 13, 2013, Gabriel Orozco’s Asterisms is a unique assemblage of photos and sculpture drawn from collecting detritus at two sites. One, Astroturf Constellation, explores taxonomic classification of debris left on the playing field's at NYC's Pier 40. Near Orozco's own home, the field is the theater of his own athletic pursuit—boomeranging. This video finds the artist explaining his interest in the boomerang and how it inspired his commission by the Guggenheim.
