The Astrolabe ‘An instrument with a past and a future’ (2017 - ), Delia Milan (ES)
The astrolabe is a very ancient astronomical computer for solving problems relating to time and the position of the Sun and stars in the sky.
While working in FabLabs, Delia Milan has become fascinated with obsolete technologies such as the Astrolabe and how to represent them in digital fabrication.
The four astrolabes give an accurate time position of the night sky and represent each location of the Future Artist Makers project and the artist’s home city of Cuenca.
