Orbit Pavilion: A NASA Sound Sculpture

When I first bought a home and moved to Pasadena, The Huntington Library being around the corner was a huge selling point.  With various biomes to traverse through and a constantly evolving display of exhibits, there is always something going on there.  The Orbit Pavilion sound sculpture exhibit has been extended to September 2, 2019 so there is still time to go check out this NASA JPL artistic piece. The sculpture is 28 feet in diameter and covered in shiny aluminum, visitors will encounter a variety of sounds and effects that represent the movement of the International Space Station and 19 Earth satellites. This exhibit was a collaboration between NASA and New York-based architecture firm StudioKCA, who conceived and designed the sculpture’s structure.

“Orbit Pavilion is the brainchild of Dan Goods and David Delgado, visual strategists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory who worked in collaboration with composer Shane Myrbeck and architect Jason Klimoski of StudioKCA. The exhibition inaugurates a new initiative at The Huntington focused on creative collaborations with other organizations. The project, called Five, pairs The Huntington with five different organizations over five years, bringing in a range of contemporary artists who will respond to themes drawn from some aspect of the collections. The Library’s aerospace history holdings made this first collaboration with NASA/JPL a perfect way to launch the new initiative.” (The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens)
