the artist Her name is Helical Orbitus. She has wild red hair and only wears
clothing drenched in stars and moons.
the art Ms. Orbitus has created a model solar system, which duals as a jungle
gym for children. The model is constructed over a 100-acre area of
green fields. Looking at the creation, you will see a little boy
sliding around the ring of Saturn. Another child slides down the pole
which is the earth's axis. The enormous sun duals as a gigantic ball
pit which holds millions of soft ball for children to jump in and
throw around. If you were to fly over this piece of artwork, you
would be astounded by the vivid colors, precise distances between the
planets and the overall perfection of this model. One would barely
notice the tiny dots of children swarming the universe.
the beret Ms. Orbitus circles her artwork wearing her signature beret. She calls
it the black hole, though no one is quite sure what it looks like.
