This is another interesting sculpture at KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology). It looks like a huge space age microscope, and thanks to a couple readers of this blog, I now have information about this sculpture. It is called “Star Projector” by the German artist Oliver van den Berg. The star projector is used in planetariums to project the various stars, constellations, and planets onto the rounded ceiling screen of the planetarium.
In the picture above, I wanted to give you an idea of its size, and below is a more closeup view.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
