REMOTE CONTROLLED SHOOTING STARS

Dimensions: 14"x 6 " x6 " , plexi-glass. LEDs, motor, paper

Made for the show Dimensions Variable; Site Fixed, this model proposes a public art work - remote controlled shooting stars - sited for Saairnen's MIT Chapel. The proposed remote controlled stars would extend Saarinen's reflections of the sky in the water (and the twinkling effects of Harry Bertoia's sculpture) long into the evening. And-for those who believe in astrology-allow us to play gods, by re-arranging the heavens and, by extension, our destinies.
