Risa Horowitz Imaging Saturn

Imaging Saturn (Modeling Views) is a selection of images and objects that depict Saturn’s appearance throughout its orbit. The exhibition is not illustrative; the viewer does not need to know the science. Within the exhibition there are photographs, and there are some lines and circles that refer to the apparent paths of the sun, stars, and Saturn. There are some apparently Modernist sculptures on the wall that swing back and forth like a pendulum, or something propelled by gravitational attraction. There is a kinetic sculpture that propels a model of Saturn around the gallery. And there is a video of that object in motion.

The ememo is sent out on a weekly basis every Wednesday. All news submissions must be submitted by email to fineart@umanitoba.ca before Tuesday at 4:30pm to be considered for the following week’s ememo.
