Publisher Description

Sky Spirals is the first title of Frames of Sky from Earth, a series of multimedia interactive publications that capture the intersections of art, astronomy and architecture. Sky Spirals brings to the digital media the spirit of of the ancient interpretations of the sky, often illustrated in the celestial atlases merging imagination with science in a poetic view of the cosmos. 

Sky Spirals also includes also multimedia content from proposals for public art projects; the proposals were developed by the author in the 1990s, based on the spiral shape as a metaphor and literal expression of a link between remote and local places, virtual and geographic locations.Spirals offer a framework for man-made interventions on nature, facilitating the naked eye observation of the universe from an art and science perspective. The aim of Frames of Sky from Earth, in conjunction with the public art projects, is ultimately to construct theories and methodologies of placemaking reconnecting ourselves to the perception of universe — the belief that the self and the universe and are not separate entities but part of the same system can bring ecological awareness to be integrated in our daily life practices.
