Earth’s Blanket continues fabrication! Similar to the construction of Latent Energy, Earth’s Blanket is composed of a powder-coated stainless steel and aluminum support structure, illuminated acrylic hemispheres, and custom electronics. This small series includes six interactive sculptures that represent important small molecules: water, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and freon-12. The molecules are arranged around the Colorado State University Chemistry Building and Science Quad in an array that invites exploration and socialization.
