Reentry: New York City


Bill Dolson's Reentry Series uses multiple synthetic meteors to produce luminous, ephemeral drawings in the upper atmosphere. These drawings will persist for only seconds, at most minutes. The behavior of individual synthetic meteors will be similar to naturally occurring meteors. However, their composition and configuration will be controlled and intentional, exhibiting various elementary geometric relationships which will be obviously premeditated and systematic to any observer. The fact that these are deliberate drawings will be inescapable. The Reentry Series is one of several proposed series of dynamic environmental works which involve the synthesis and plastic use of otherwise naturally occurring, very large scale, time dependent visual phenomena.
