Electrostar embodies perfect clockwork and harmony in the universe. Electrostar’s interwoven geometric pattern comes from a motif in Arabic architecture. Electrostar’s body contains dark blue shapes representing space, silver lines representing the paths of the electrons, and light blue glow representing the electron cloud. This work explores themes I learned in Physics class regarding atomic and electrical energy, and the relationship between space and mass. I feel that the patterns explore scientifically backed ideas about the illusion of solid separateness and the vast emptiness of space.
Above: I worked with Tabare Gawon as Electrostar, setting this series at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Electrostar's ideal environment intersects with two concepts: Time and Space. Here structured space is suggested through the city architecture , and the nautical setting where skilled navigation is critical.
Above: Shawn Pauling as Electrostar. These photographs were taken at and during the Figment 2011 festival, at the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Time and Space are both signified through the rather unusual juxtapositions of metal sculpture and large stones, and certain inclusions in the background architecture.
