Les révolutions sidérales
A binary star system is composed of two stars that are gravitationally bound to one another, circling in mutual orbit. Astronomers identify different types of binary systems based upon the relation between the two stars. These observations describe not only their current state, but also suggest their future destinies. Les revolutions sidérales focuses on the exchanges that occur between body-to-body elements that are drawn together. The exhibition gathers several components, including photographs, citations, and a star-machine to explore astral entanglements and their earthly reflections.
