Daniel Kohn was the Broad’s founding artist-in-residence. Following an invitation from Broad chief scientific officer Todd Golub, he returned in 2012 and created “Instance of a visual dataset,” as part of the Broad Creative year-long celebration of art and science. As a result of his interaction with the Broad community, his work now explores the place of science and the structures we use to understand our world.
Kohn’s Broad commission explored genomics using visual metaphor. He described the installation as “the product of eight years of exposure, discussion, disagreement, and collaboration with Broad scientists.” Kohn’s work “Instance of a visual dataset” is installed on all floors of Broad’s 415 Main building.
