Peter Erskine’s Secrets of the Sun-Solar Spectrum Environmental Art

 

German artist, Peter Erskine, based in California created these amazing light spectra, whose intensely project bright rainbow colors on the facades of various historical sites around the world (mostly in Rome in this article). Created from 1989 to 2000, these installations entitled “New Light on Rome” and “Secrets of the Sun, Millennial Meditations (SOS), are about mystical representation of the sun and energy sources.

Millennial Meditations” is a culmination of his interest in the interplay of light, space, and architecture. For thirty years his sculpture has explored the way in which light falls on modulated surfaces. “Secrets of the Sun” uses the emotional impact of art to address the full range of nature from its most elemental expression as pure light to its most complex expression as global ecology.

In “Cromos” and “New Light on Rome” the universal beauty and power of the solar spectrum, one of Nature’s most fundamental forces, is superimposed on the surfaces and structure of some of the most beautiful public buildings in Italy.

Because the sun’s angle, intensity and color continually change with the hour, day, and season, the art, the ancient monuments, the trains and the stations are continually perceived in a fresh, new light.

STOP!!! animal genocide

FOLLOW US ON TWITTER

To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.
