Starlight…

Starlight is a modest sculptural installation that was installed at Burning Man 2012 and other festivals.  Seven twelve foot diameter plywood stars were placed in the Black Rock desert mapping out the constellation Orion, creating a sense of place and a “heaven on earth” effect.  Starlight was a do it yourself project designed by a few but constructed and funded by many.  The stars were designed to look good day and night and to appeal from great distances in order to draw in the curious.  Repetition, scale and tension are used to combat the overwhelming scale of the Black Rock desert  while getting the most from a budget of roughly $5,000.  Starlight – Erich Remash, Jeremy Berglund, Don Peterson + Chad Ingle…More images at remash.

WHEN I heard the learn’d astronomer;  When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;  When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;  When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,  How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,  In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,  Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. - Walt Whitman

Heaven, Earth, Water…

…I am swept off my feet by the Busan Opera House by Snohetta.  It is a graceful beauty.  The idea behind its conception is thoughtful and meaningful…

The form of the Busan Opera house is derived from its own context and culture.The basis for the lay-out refers to Kun (Heaven) meeting Kon (Earth) which again meet Kam (Water).  The classical trigrams of these elements both describe this site exceptionally well, whilst they refer to the historical and philosophical relationships that are of great importance to Korean culture. The slight bending of the surfaces in Snøhetta`s design are the bars of the trigrams slightly deformed to touch and meet each other in a subtle manner.
