Celestial Mechanica
Celestial Mechanica

Celestial Mechanica is a chance to see a million years of movement in one moment. Bringing the mystery of the heavenly bodies closer, this 20 ft. tall kinetic steel sculpture will allow you to explore our solar system through an immersive experience. As nine unique planets twirl upon their own axes, simultaneously orbiting a fiery Sun, Celestial Mechanica invites you to appreciate their majestic dance. You will witness the ebb and flow of the tides, the sun’s rise and set, and the waxing and waning of the moon, all driven by a mechanical system as precise and elegant as the planetary dance they’re choreographing.
