Test Site Wallach/Uris: Scaled Solar System [09.19.12 / 9:00am]
2016 / Wood, plexi, silkscreen, ink on vinyl / 947 x 545 x 545 1/2 in (2405 x 1384 x 1386 cm)
An image of Earth is silkscreened on a circle plexiglass in the middle of the room and an image of the Moon on the window of the building across. Their distance and scale are proportional to the actual Earth and its Moon. Their proportional ratio is then used to expand back out to the other planets and the Sun as they were on September 19th, 2012 at 9:00am, when my father passed away. The Sun and other planets are placed in the room with specific angles in relation to the printed Earth. Their location and imagery information are also found on Google Maps, from New York to the states near by, and are included on each plaque.
