THE PLANETS · QUEENS / NYC


The Planets is a sculptural installation about our solar system, a source of wonder for both children and adults.

In the form of a planetary model, the sculpture hangs from the ceiling of a school lobby. The 8 planets and the sun are fabricated in colorful powder-coated metal.

The model is accompanied by planetary mnemonics, phrases used to remember the name and sequence of the planets.

The text for the mnemonics (inspired by dadaist poems) will be written by the students, and the phrases, made of powder-coated metal letters, will be mounted on the high wall in the lobby area.
