Seven Sisters

The Seven Sisters is a collection of interactive fire sculptures inspired by the constellation Pleiades- the 7 sisters. There are myths of these stars from the Ancient Greeks,  Native American Kiowa Tribe, the Blackfoot tribes of Alberta and Montana, and more. 

To us, the 7 sisters are bright sculptures celebrating myth, science, art, and the vast, and sometimes hidden, role of women within Astronomy and other science fields. 

The installation is composed of seven sculptures, some rising from the ground, some hovering 20 feet in the air. Each individual star is a stand-alone sculpture, but their combined effect is dazzling and spellbinding.

Each sculpture includes a unique flame effect. They may be shown together, apart, or in many different combinations.
