As part of the v2v co-commission, I have been asked by the members of the Russian team to design the booth for a preview of the project at the trade-show Innoprom. Here are my designs:
although I was not able to convince the Russian the construction crew to cut a ‘sun’ into the ceiling, I am very happy with the results. Zehnya and the team was able make a few finishing touches and the booth looked great.
Parhelion is a projection environment sited at Villa Montalvo’s Love Temple during the Starry Starry Night program. Realtime images of the Sun from satellite observatories are cast on the ceiling of the temple structure providing a low and ambient light near and around the structure.. This video installation allows visitors to do the extraordinary: stare into the intricacies of the Sun throughout the night.
Parhelion is a collaborative production. Team members: Thomas Asmuth: lead, video, and logistics. Sarah Lowe: materials and installation. Ethan Miller: code. James Morgan: telemetry. Wayne and Rebecca Madsen: code.
