This kinetic sculpture also known as “The Galaxy” has been enjoyed at many outdoor and indoor events since the early version shown here. Spiral arms, feathered with illuminated fiber-optic tendrils, rotate slowly around a central star. Gentle lighting effects play across the galactic fibers, including a wash of subtle color changes over time. A dynamic, seemingly organic light show at contemplative speeds.
In the deep playa at night there are two separate sources of light – the eternal points of light in the sky and the temporary lights of our earthbound creation. One of these temporary points of light captures the cosmos and represents it on a human scale. This piece manifests our celestial birthplace; our galaxy, the Milky Way. Welcome home.
