Our Beloved and Sacred Sun

Ontological research to re-establish the Human - Sun relationship


you wake up,
our sun shines high in the sky,
you feel the light gently touches your face.
listen to the sunโ€™s wisdom, it whispers to you.

By documenting and tracing various Sun Worships, Religions, Cults, Mythos, Deities, and Icons, the project looks at our relationships with the sun, and using symbolic language and attempts to embody it, bringing the primaeval essence
of the Sun back into our lives. Cast and carved from a bespoke egg-yolk & collagen compound biopolymer, the material links the object to the motif of The World Egg and The Golden Womb, which is theย mythological source of all life;

Solar Idols

are the translation of the research.

โ€˜Our Beloved and Sacred Sunโ€™ becomes a series Light Sculpture depicting a Solar Analemma Idol,
an anthropomorphized Sun taking shape in ancient/modern object symbiosis;
An artifact from an unknown place and an unknown time,
and yet radiating the light, warmth and feelings that are oddly familiar, positive and comforting.

each Solar Idol is an unique proto-wetware artwork made from biopolymer;
each iteration is alive, ages, changes, and varies visually from each other.
