Item details

Designed in collaboration with astronomer Simon Balm, 'Stellar Axis Antarctica' was intended to mirror or map the southern constellations as seen at 12 noon on the day of the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. It was realized through the alignment of 99 blue spheres across the Antarctic ice cap - the size of each sphere echoing the brightness of the corresponding star. It is one of Lita Albuquerque's best artworks which can be found enhancing the dining area of Charlie Palmer Steak New York.
