    hmm, I wish I could see this up close? Is the blue fabric some sort of map? Are the placement of the holes somehow significant? Checked out the artists site and still so many unanswered questions!

    • Hi There!

      To answer your question, the blue fabric is nylon, hand dyed, hand-sewn holes. The placement of the holes is significant. The overall composition is a nautical navigation chart – of the Autumn sky. Specific date October 21st. What’s great is that when this was installed for show, it was October 21st, and it mirrored the star alignment in the sky.

        Wow! Very thoughtful work indeed! Thanks for the answer and also its a lovely piece! Wish I could have seen it at night as the previous commenter described, sounds even more lovely!

      • Hey there again. You can view the photos of it at night on my website at http://www.courtneylfromberg.com in the Sculpture section. There are some shots of it there. Thank you! :)

  • for whatever reason i assumed this was a star map/chart – would love to know the answers to your questions as well!

    It is in fact a star map. I saw it up close and personal out in the middle of the corn field, and it was quite a spectacle, especially at night when they had the giant light shinning through it. You could see it from quite a distance.

Photographer Thomas Prior Captures Mexican Festival of Sledgehammers and Homemade Explosives

Men in the Mexican town of San Juan de la Vega wield sledgehammers loaded with homemade explosives, in this series of intense photographs by American photographer Thomas Prior.

Part of an annual festival honouring St. John the Baptist, residents take part in the exploding sledgehammer ritual, dodging deadly shrapnel to commemorate a time when the town’s namesake was able to triumph over some gold-stealing bandits! See more images from “Bomba” below, available now through Dashwood Books.
