Planetario | 2010

Planetario, 2010
(Urban installation)

A basketball, a pin, marbles, balls of different sizes, a grain of sand, a ping pong ball, a golf ball, a pebble.

Urban model of the solar system built with common objects, respecting the original relationship of each component to the others as far as size and distance are concerned.

The Sun is a basketball, Mercury the tip of a pin 13 meters away, Venus the seed of an apple 25 meters from the basketball, and so on up to Pluto, a tiny grain of sand at 1,300 meters. Proxima Centauri is a ping pong ball placed 8 km from the Sun.

The work represents as much as possible the actual position of the planets at the time the model takes shape in the city.
