Kinetic sculptures

Visiting Jessica MacMillan studio in the Artists' House. American multidisciplinary artist MacMillan creates sculptures and installations within astronomy and their relationship to the actuality of daily life on our planet. She explains to visitors her visions of this installation that in astronomy, reality and appearance are more disconnected than in any other area of human experience. The kinetic sculptures of household objects are aligned with the axis of the planet and mounted the same that are used for guiding telescopes.
