Death of a Sun by Director X
An immersive experience where the observer will witness a massive sculpture of the sun as it progresses through its life cycle. A deeply personal and highly evocative meditation on human mortality and people’s individual place in the universe, this installation portrays the death of the star that sustains this planet.
“Growing up spending my summers in Georgian Bay, Ontario, I remember vividly as a child, laying by the lake and staring up at the clear star-filled sky. The immensity of what I saw made me think about the Earth and how small it is in the grand scheme of things; how much smaller humans are in comparison to Earth. Although we all know that our earth is a tiny little rock in comparison to our sun, a true comprehension of this immense reality is difficult to grasp.
These experiences of nature formed my worldview of one unified planet. Whether other people realize it or not, our countries, currencies, trade agreements and geopolitical conflicts are all social constructs and are essentially purposeless in the great long haul. With this shifted perspective, our importance and relativity to the Sun as human beings diminishes into the unfathomable. This installation is intended to portray the death of the star that sustains us.” – Director X
