In this post I want you to bring part 9 of my latest project (for those who missed out on part 1, more info at the bottom of this post). If you want to hear the audio, just click on the image (duration 125 sec).

Uranus. Mixed technics on canvas 45 x 45 cm by Shaharee Vyaas (2023). Collection Civilization and Cosmos part 9

Hyperion by Keats

Just at the self-same beat of Times´ wide wings
And Saturn gained alone that sad place
Where Cybele and the bruised Titans mourn
Uranus slid into the rustled air,
His voice leapt out, despite of godlike curb,
To this result:, “O dreams of day and night!
“Saturn is fallen, am I too to fall?
“I cannot see—but darkness, death and darkness
“Over the fiery frontier of my realms
“I will advance a terrible right arm
“Shall scare that infant thunderer Mythopia,
The sky is mine to behold, no human shall intrude
Your human-carrying candles I will burn.
End your wars, restore the earth
before you start groping, for the mighty stars.

My latest project concerns itself with a multimedia installation that consists of a rotating rhombicuboctahedron that is suspended in a magnetic field. The twelve square faces of the rhombicuboctahedron are carrying an image that represents the mythological aspects of the main celestial bodies that make our planetary system. While the installation makes every two minutes a turn to bring another planet in focus, a melody is played that consists of a classical music tune that is derived from the electromagnetic waves emitted by this particular celestial body mixed with a poem that refers to a specific phase that occurs in every civilization cycle with a reference to the classic European mythology that backs it up. The installation measures about 3 meters over 3 meter. The concept of this installation is founded upon the idea of how the cyclical nature of a multitude of phenomena mirrors circulatory cosmological and biological patterns.
