Shackleton @ MUSE

  • Trento | Muse

Art & Science.

Following the invitation of Muse ho1 took part in the two days celebrating the opening of the new science museum in Trento designed by Renzo Piano. Muse opening was an astonishing event, 30.000 people attended the vernissage on july 27th and 28th. We presented the prototypes and the technology of our Shackleton sculpture on the “inventori” performance that took place on the main stage on Sunday morning…the real sculpture was installed just in front of the entrance of the museum in the contest of the “big bang” show organized by galleria Boccanera in collaboration with Muse.
Shackleton shape reproduces the morphology of the lunar surface rebuilt following in detail Japan Aerospace Agency analysis, in this occasion the sculpture was enhanced with a particular version of our patented t-sculpt™ technology that allows for thermal control of the aluminium casting: we cooled down the surface to the point that the metal started to be covered by little drops of water, turning Shackleton in a spectacular object…attracting people of every age who were staring, touching and sitting on it…with temperature raising up to 40 degrees a cool and welcoming sheleter for all the visitors passing by…
Shackleton will be on show until september 7th, 2013…
