about this photo
9:00 PLAZA — Cosmos
by Royce Carlson
The heavenly bodies rotate and orbit in circles and ellipses in space; planets spin their way through the cosmos in a circular motion. A steel gazebo containing dozens of orbiting planet-like elements driven by the wind reflects the spins and orbits of the universe. In the center of the gazebo is an abstract representation of the Earth spinning on its axis and lit from within at night. Surrounding the upper reaches of the gazebo is a Saturn-like ring depicting the 12 signs of the Zodiac. COSMOS is an abstract microcosmic representation of the macrocosmic order of the universe.
