Private Planetariums

Old sheets, black-out drapery fabric,
tent poles, cushions.
Each tent is 5′ x 6′ x 4 
Each cushion 18″x18″.

According to the patterns of the flowers on the sheets, I punched holes in the white black-out fabric. When viewers enter the tent they see pinpoints of light that mimic constellation patterns. I made three tents to represent the three aspects of astrological signs: the sun, moon, and rising signs. In this case the tents refer to: Virgo/earth/green; Aries/fire/pink; and Cancer/water/blue.
