Eye on the Sky

Steve Elicker & Gregory Pickens

Eye on the Sky is an installation that depicts our solar system using various colors and materials going from the sun to Pluto. Warm colors are used nearest to the sun to represent heat and light given by the gas giant. The closer and closer one gets to Pluto, the cooler the colors get. Mosaics and metal plates stand in for the planets. Planets represented by metal plates have phrases written on them.
