Wolfgang Buttress as Artists

CONCEPT There are 9,100 stars one can see with the naked eye from Earth. In collaboration with ANU astrophysicist Dr. Daniel Bayliss these were mapped and cut as perforations into a reflective stainless steel sphere.Inside this orb sits another 2 metre od mirror polished sphere. By looking through one of the stars one can see a microcosm of our night sky.

DETAIL Connections between the micro and the macro are suggested as are notions of absence and presence. The piece acts as a portal and mirror reflecting the immediate architectural surroundings, nature, one's own reflection and in turn one's relationship with oneself and the stars above.
