Elemental Garden is comprised of eight sculptures inspired by the orbital patterns of elements in descending order of creation from collapsing stars: Hydrogen, Helium, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Silicon, Phosphorus, Sulfur. The sculptures are installed in the education area of the Taubman Museum and include a soundscape created by bio-musician, Susan Alexjander titled: Elements as Tone, which was part of the initial installation at CHF, played via a sound dome pictured in this image.
