Tomás Saraceno’s Solar Bell

View all 5 Photos

Solar Bell is architecture in the sky using the latest in sustainable wind technology. Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno envisions a future where designs take flight, as in this 5 meter tall sculpture made of reflective panels and lightweight carbon fiber tubing. His goal is to facilitate a much grander scale where people can stand within the structure hovering over the earth by more than 60 meters. The pyramid glitters wildly in the sunlight, presenting instant bling to the horizon. Flying throughout the month of August 2013 as part of Portscapes 2 in Rotterdam the Netherlands.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
