The IAIS Cosmological Exhibition

In the 3rd floor Museum Room.  The centerpiece of the Cosmological exhibit is by Genevieve DeLeon and is part of her Star Series. This particular piece is called “Virgo”. Here is a short writeup about Star Series:

“De Leon’s Star Series paintings represent star maps of constellations that form portions of the Maya zodiac. Derived from gridded, data-rich images of the sky, each painting renders the celestial firmament, frame by frame. Each square, like a Maya unit of time, operates as a fractal part of the whole and generates a visual field alive with interconnection.”
