SPACE WALK is an after dark immersive visual art installation designed to convey the true scale of our solar system, both in terms of the size of the planets and their distances from the sun. Following a linear path spanning 3/4 of a mile and at a scale of 3.5 Billion:1, this walkable installation replicates the vastness of space in a tangible way.
Beginning at the sun, a hand painted globe filled with 50 pulsing LED lights intended to emulate solar activity, explorers continue along the path visiting each planet as they travel further out from the sun. Our miniature planets are hand-painted in realistic detail with blacklight acrylic and lit with solar powered UV lights after dusk.
SPACE WALK intends to be the most realistic to-scale outdoor model of our solar system in the world and lives along the Mill Greek Greenway path at Salway park, in Cincinnati, OH.
