Una, 2013, Australia
There are 9,100 stars one can see with the naked eye from Earth. In collaboration with ANU astrophysicist Dr. Daniel Bayliss these were mapped and cut as perforations into a reflective stainless steel sphere.
Inside this orb sits another 2 metres od mirror polished sphere. By looking through one of the stars one can see a microcosm of our night sky.
Connections between the micro and the macro are suggested as are notions of absence and presence.
The piece acts as a portal and mirror reflecting the immediate architectural surroundings, nature, one's own reflection and in turn one's relationship with oneself and the stars above.
