Constellations has several movements representing star clusters; they can be used in any order, performed singularly, with any subset, repeated movements, or in parts separated from each other by other compositions. These movements can even be layered on top of each other or with other works much like a mobile.
This mobile of movements is inspired by the night sky and the images created from the human inclination to define our environment as well as ourselves. Cultures have described the patterns of stars in terms of themselves from Sumerian times to modern day. In the past, constellations have depicted a myriad of objects and characters. Today our technology sparks imagination by photographing these same stars, displaying them as photographic art. This work is homage to both the past and present, staring not only into the heavens, but also into ourselves.
