|Dimensions||42 × 42 in|
24K gold plate beads, organza, wood support
A total of 9,096 stars light the night sky. Divide in half: north/south hemispheres: 4,548 points of visible light. Heaven is unobservable, in its entirety, from any location, on planet earth.
"HEAVEN (the complete version)" is composed of 9,096 24k gold-plated beads, hand-sewn, to a transparent support. A construction devised to activate ambient light—final effect: a floating veil of shimmering stars. The inclusion of gold is corroboration of materiality: a consequence of colliding neutron stars. Powerful, cosmic events that produce gravitational waves within the fabric of space-time itself. Illuminating evidence is indicative of knowledge beyond what can be observed.
