Olafur Eliasson Your black horizon / Your activity horizon (2005)
In a windowless pavilion a thin horizontal line directed through a narrow gap at eye level serves as the primary light source. The light is constantly changing colors and rotates through the color spectrum every few minutes. The light installation was calibrated to the specific light conditions of Venice. While Your activity horizon tried to capture the northern light of Iceland, Your black horizon seizes the Mediterranean light of the laguna. Accurate light recordings have been taken from sunrise to sunset to study the spectrum of light and its intensity.
”Solar Equation” by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
This large installation entitled Solar Equation is a simulation of the Sun, 100 million times smaller than the real thing! The sphere, commissioned by the Light in Winter Festival in Australia, is the largest spherical balloon in the world.
Using mathematical equations, Lozano-Hemmer developed a pattern of animations that are projected onto the sphere, and that never repeat. Through this simulation, the artist provides the public with a glimpse of the Sun’s unpredictable and intense atmosphere. The public can interact with the installation and affect these animations via an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad application, creating various visual experiences. It’s hard to imagine seeing such a large, burning star so gigantic and up-close.

… the last part of the project. Wasn’t sure how many screenshots would suffice and I am “screenshot happy” soul generally, so figured it couldn’t hurt to throw in some old with the new for quantity. LOL.
