Celestial Harmony

Awesome Sauce Vote Code: 67537

Celestial Harmony started with four large panels 4' X 2'. I did large paintings on them and Dylan cut the panels into 3'' strips. We then made squares out of the panels. The entire structure is 13 layers of squares. The squares are attached to each other via rubber bands. The whole structure was designed to rotate but, in the end, the motor, which is epoxied into the base, couldn't sustain the weight/pressure we intended for it. That explains the lazy susans on the spine and the sketch up model of the hypothetical sculpture rotating. During install I was busy watching Jay, our toddler. As he was pulling me on a tour past the museum , saying "hi" and "bye" to the buses, and running around it was not the time to take photos of Dylan putting the layers together on Jefferson in the beautiful sunlight. A few passerby did stop and say, "I wish this would stay on the sidewalk by our Air BNB," and "It's beautiful, have a blessed day." I hope those who see it get a rush of, "Wow, that exists." Something good.
