Vaudeville Park is pleased to present a multi-piece sculptural glass, light and drawn works installation together with a live music performance, for March 8th, 7:30pm. This exhibition is anticipation of a potentially larger, future Planetarium event. Blending “sci-fi” film score with interpretive acoustic electric “new music” music. This installation performance takes as its subject the USGS Landsat survey satellites. Already NASA has taken a huge interest in this Installation since past November’s first show.

The artists, Caleb Nussear and Ian M Colletti involved are in coordination with the Museum of Natural History to present this as a larger scale install event, with a musical ensemble showcasing new works of the artist. March 8th’s showcase will present new drawings and sculptural work by artist Caleb Nussear, and new music for voice, flute, harp and synthesizer by composer Ian M. Colletti (www.ianmcolletti.com), with Daniel Carter. Music starts at 8pm.

All of the work presented is based upon consideration of the physical forms and materials of earth-mapping satellites. This project investigates the artistic qualities of celestial technology, and the uncanny similarities between archaic and contemporary examples. For example, the 24-carat gold-plating used in the construction of the Landsat satellites for its superb energy conductive qualities is also the material that the ancient Egyptians chose to cap the Pyramids with for political and religious reasons. In both cases advanced technology and speculative celestial theology dovetail in the construction of exquisite manmade objects.
