Radiación Solar

“Radiación Solar” was reconstructed from an astronomy textbook with the same title. The book’s form is a literal circle with the shape similarly represented on the covers, mimicking the imagery of planets and stars in the original book. Planets speak a circular language and this piece explores that idea by using ribbons of the original text to weave in and out of its pages. The text creates a ring when completely unfolded. The repetition of the circle throughout the piece uses the shape’s symbolism of eternity to explore the connection between heaven and space. While heaven represents eternal life, the space that exists beyond our clouds stretches out for an eternity. Neither locations can be seen with the eye and are connected through faith.
