The Orbit Pavilion Takes Off

Cultured 25 | Oct 2016 | BY Cultured Magazine

Outer space comes to The Huntington Museum in San Marino, where you can find the Orbit Pavilion, a nautilus-shaped sculpture roughly 28 feet in diameter, designed by Jason Klimoski and Lesley Chang of StudioKCA in collaboration with NASA and JPL.

Inside is an audio installation fed by 19 different satellites, including the International Space Station. But instead of blips and static we get a human voice, a frog croaking, the crashing of a wave, or wind in the trees as interpreted by sound artist Shane Myrbeck. The Orbit Pavilion makes its West Coast debut October 29.
