We Who Spin Around You

Eduardo Navarro

We Who Spin Around You brings audiences face-to-face with our relationship to the celestial. In the early evening as the sun begins to lower in the sky, Navarro invites participants to don custom-made bronze masks designed to help them safely view the sun, transforming it into a tiny green sphere. Then, as night falls across the Southdown industrial area in Mississauga, astrophysicists, astronomers, poets, and researchers give brief lectures on solar history and humanity’s changing relationship to the sun and skies. The work— situated in parkland on the shore of Lake Ontario with sightlines to smoke stacks—invites viewers to think about their place in the surrounding terrestrial and celestial worlds.

 

Lectures, poems and readings will be delivered every night at sunset by Sonja Greckol, Renée Hložek, Julie Joosten, Kent Moore, Stephen Morris, and Karyn Recollet.
