Blog . Solar Equation
Solar Equation is an interactive public art installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer consisting of the world’s largest spherical balloon, 5 projectors, and an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Although the balloon is the largest in the world, it is still 1 million times smaller than the actual sun. The balloon is tethered over Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia where viewers can download an app created for the project called Solar Equation to change the animations displayed on the faux sun in real time. The animations on the balloon are representative of solar flares, turbulence, and other disturbances that are happening on our real sun. Solar Equation is intended to induce “romantic environments of ephemerality, mystery and paradox, such as those from Blake or Goethe. Every culture has a unique set of solar mythologies and this project seeks to be a platform for both the expression of traditional symbolism and the emergence of new stories.”
