Heavenly Bodies; Illuminated rocket
Heavenly Bodies AKA MAF Unit 0 is a 16’ tall 6’ diameter, steel and illuminated resin, rocket planetarium. Its cosmic patterns seek to connect us to our origins. Mystery, Connection, Awe, Beauty, and Disequilibrium. Scientists tell us that everything our physical bodies is made of was once a star. This concept illuminates the connections between ourselves and our environments. We are but a small part of a huge system. This installation provides an opportunity to connect three dimensionally with our origins; it possesses the alchemic visual power to transport the viewer back into their heavenly bodies; to become “star stuff”.
Heavenly Bodies; Illuminated rocket is an Illuminate The Night project of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg funded by our Producing Partner Winnipeg Arts Council.
