Kites

BFA Project
Installation and video shown at the 2010 Time Arts BFA Senior Show, Nine Bits Turn Neon at Northern Illinois University.

The sculpture is a wood frame covered in stretched fabric. It is lit by a projector mapped to the sculpture's silhouette and running a VVVV patch that represents the universe from origin to present, compressed into a span of just over 90 minutes. The patterns start as vibrant, distinct colors that fade into a uniform noise over the course of the show, imitating the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of the Big Bang.

Inspired by The Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan, the video includes an excerpt of the book along with visuals of the sculpture.
