Space Observer

Artist: Björn Schülke (2010)

Reminiscent of a space craft, this glossy white 26’ tall sculpture standing on eight-foot tripod legs, explores the interactivity between humans and modern technology. Engage with this elaborate, yet delicate object and it will quietly rotate with the help of two propeller-tipped arms, using its kinetic cameras to reveal live images.
