Each Star Bale is 6' x 6' x 6'. They have an internal wooden structure that is then wrapped in hay and covered with the netting that most hay bales use. The piece covers about 3 acres.
Vedic City is surrounded by farm land. This piece was designed to glorify the typical rural agricultural environment.
The artist/designer conceived the piece and the designed the construction technique. The collaborator helped with the physical construction. A farmer was consulted to determine the placement of the Star Bales out in the field.
The Star Bales were in place for 1 1/2 years. Obviously, it was not designed to last forever. Everyone loved it.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
