Astrofengaiá is a creative meditation on cosmologic circularity. Best experienced under blazing daytime sun, this light-refractive art installation is a home-spun shrine designed to embellish the beauty of Earth’s resident star. Lovingly made from upcycled and reclaimed materials, Astrofengaiá’s frame and walls provide respite from desert heat. Reflective wall cladding acts as a giant lens, focusing sunlight into undulating light patterns that move and morph across the ground. People’s reflections glide across semi-transparent surfaces. Faces merge with foreground and background, like a hall of mirrors. Participants listen through headphones to custom soundscapes crafted from NASA archives, electronica, binaural beats, and human voice. The artwork’s name is a play on words, a contraction of the Greek words for starlight (astrofengiá) and mother of all life (Gaia).
