Sunbeams!!! :) ♥

The Link above is to the ONE DAY POEM PAVILION -
Using a complex array of perforations, light passing through the pavilions surface produces shifting patterns, which transform into the legible text of a poem.

The specific arrangements of the perforations reveal different poems according to the solar calendar: a theme of new-life during the summer solstice. During the summer solstice, the poem will contain the theme of new life. During the winter solstice, the poem will be on reflection and the passing of time.

The pavilion is reminiscent of a geodesic dome. When daylight filters through the perforations on the surface, a poem becomes revealed on the ground as a projection.

The resulting effect is inviting and magical. Within the pavilion, the poem can be seen between 8 AM and 4PM. The poem consists of 5 lines with each line lasting about an hour. The slowness of message offers us a meditative moment within our hectic lives.

Summer, catching the sunbeams on the dried rabbitbush heads in this ethereal scene is Heaven on Earth. ♥

Kudos, and congrats, Summer! The tips of the rabbitbrush reflect the gold of the setting sun so well - adding an element of pointilism to this watercolored image of sand. Wow!

Quoting CameraDiva:
Thanks so much everyone! My camera was getting lonely and so was I,so it was lots of fun to get out and shoot last weekend. I can't believe its been since January since I posted anything. I need to get my priorities straight and have some fun with all of you :) The sun is highlighting the tops of dried rabbitbrush heads and there's a skiff of snow on the hillside.


I knew we were missing something! Glad you are back posting! Thank you for returning. :)
