    Barbara Westermann's Observatory is a cluster of architectonic objects that suggest the ability to transmit and receive worldly and otherworldly music and/or information. They are objects of and for meditation and introspection. The sculptures reflect and absorb light and sound like a tree's leaves; a conceptual, aural photosynthesis. All the "satellites" are sculptures made from molds of satellite dishes, molded and hewn away from a prefabricated look. The installation underscores relationships between exterior and interior architecture, public and private arenas.
