    The Orb



Artist Statement:

    The Orb bridges the gap between the art object and functional information display, advancing desires for more sophisticated digital representations, while simultaneously establishing a dialogue between the new technology and the symbolic content of the display. Featuring an 18-inch-diameter display and aluminum and carbon-fiber construction, this version has a spherical resolution of 1024 X 216 with 24-bit color. It explores visualisations of the phenomena of creation and destruction within the universe, evoking a “big bang” and eventual climate collapse.
