Kepler is a design light sculpture built with a system of joint clutches and it is made of corten and brass, both oxidized with Angela Ardisson’s own creative techniques. A glass cylinder wraps the thin light crossing the spherical sculpture womb diametrically, creating reflections from one side to the other and generating a chromatic magmatic effect on the brass surfaces, almost filling it with matter, which is represented only by very thin metal plates along the border. The project was created for the HoperAperta 2020 exhibition. Kepler is the name of a NASA mission, part of Discovery program, aimed at discovering Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone of a wide variety of stars, using the space telescope named after the astronomer Johannes Kepler.
