A Hodge class on a smooth complex projective variety gives rise to an associated hermitian line bundle on a Zariski open subset of a complex projective space P^n. I will discuss recent work with P. Brosnan which shows that the Hodge conjecture is equivalent to the existence of a particular kind of degenerate behavior of this metric near the boundary.
