100 Tiny Thing "Sunset Lantern"
The rising and falling of the sun is an experience of observational wonder. I would like to highlight the vastness of the sky above in a smaller cylindrical setting. One of the most wonderous things about a sunset is the light and colors that form in the sky. I will highlight this beauty by making a small cylindrical lantern with a sunset painting on the outer surface. This Sunset Lantern is an interactive tiny thing that can be lit up with a small LED light in in the center. This creates a different view of the work during the day versus at night. I hope that this tiny thing can bring the vastness our beautiful sky into a smaller unique light form.
