This Planetarium Projector turns the gallery into a planetarium. Nine glowing pressed glass “planets” are
projected onto the surrounding surfaces- walls, windows, the ceiling and passers by. The source of these
images is a handmade planetarium projector, with nine magnifying tubes expanding radially from the
domed base of the apparatus. In this piece, I am linking the patterning of the pressed glass directly to
celestial bodies in the night sky.
