Activity information

Tycho was one of the last astronomers who did all his work without a telescope, since he died in 1601, shortly before his invention. Instead, its observatory contained a large globe and numerous quadrants and astrolabes. Friedlander was thinking about the experience of being in this strange observatory that was partly to inspire this installation. It also happens that the light work has taken a form that approaches the monolith in the film “2001: A Space Odyssey”, and that was discovered by the astronauts on the moon, according to the story, hidden under the dust on the ground of the Tycho crater.
