Extended!

The Orbit Pavilion

The Huntington Library, Art Collection, & Botanical Gardens

1151 Oxford Road

San Marino

626 405 2100

This WAS scheduled to close in February. However this unique display’s existence is now extended through September.

This is the Orbit Pavilion at the Huntington Library in San Marino, a large, shell-shaped sculpture, where we can actually hear the satellites that study the Earth that are passing through space continuously, collecting data on everything from hurricanes to the effects of drought. Distinctive sounds are emitted as each satellite passes overhead: a human voice, the crashing of a wave, a tree branch moving, a frog croaking. Each sound interprets one of the satellites’ missions.

The outdoor installation is the brainchild of Dan Goods and David Delgado, visual strategists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who worked in collaboration with composer Shane Myrbeck and architect Jason Klimoski of StudioKCA to produce an innovative “soundscape” experience representing the movement of the International Space Station and 19 Earth Science satellites.
