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.
