“Ephemeris” Sculpture Relocated To Culbreth Theatre

April 25, 2003 --
WHO: Artist Andra Samelson

WHAT: Installation art – “Ephemeris”

WHEN: Through March 2004

WHERE: In front of Culbreth Theatre

“Ephemeris,” a ground installation by New York artist Andra Samelson will be on exhibit in front of Culbreth Theatre through March 2004.

The artwork was moved from the front of Fayweather Hall to the Culbreth Theater location following a winter exhibit of work by the artist in Fayerweather Gallery.

The installation, a 25-foot-diameter circle of a reflective, sand-like material called Black Beauty, includes more than 100 mirrors and Mylar reflective spheres varying in size from 1 to 15 inches. The creation is a metaphoric map of the night sky.

“An unrealized dream of Jefferson was to paint a night sky on the interior of the dome room of the Rotunda,” said Bill Bennett, chairman of U.Va.’s studio art program. “‘Ephemeris,’ with its hemispherical stars, helps to complete Jefferson’s dream.”

Samelson said, “Reflection is the primary component of the piece. Anything that is happening in the moment — a bird flying over head, a cloud drifting by, someone bending over to look at the piece — is a part of the piece.”
