The life of Stars

By ColleenA
In Adelaide today we came across this egg in front of the Art Gallery called The life of stars.
An artist called Lindy Lee spent three weeks in Shanghai spending 12 hours a day hand placing more than 80,000 sticky dots onto this polished steel egg. Once she had finished that laborious task a fabricator in a Chinese factory drilled all those sticky dots to create a series of intricate holes. The result is a monumental sculpture that is lit from within to resemble the universe ...the version is a close up of the egg
