Balanced on one of its five points, Falling Star brings a piece of the sky down to earth atop the toboggan hill of Half Moon Bay Park in Ottawa. Creating a bridge between the immensity of the celestial universe and our place on earth, the etched and pitted surface of the cast aluminum star tells the story of its long journey. At night light gently shines through hundreds of tiny holes referencing a starry sky.
