Overview

Stainless Steel, Mirror & Aluminum. 10' x 10' x 10'. Commissioned by Texas Tech University. Situated in the courtyard of Texas Tech’s Experimental Sciences Building, Astrolabe is a platform for observing and questioning empirical information. The design, based loosely on the primitive navigational instrument
of the same name, is inspired by the evolution of scientific exploration.
