S.U.N.F.A.R.M. is an acronym and portmanteau  (Spacetime Spiral System Survey of Universe Nature in a Future Art Revolution Movement): a meta-disciplinary project and experiential landscape started in 2001 and located in the Hudson Valley about 175 km da New York City. S.U.N.F.A.R.M. can be defined as an “art in nature” and “bio-art” project, where art is a vehicle to interpret celestial events in a place designed to make us “aware of where we are in space and time”; such awareness guides to well-being. S.U.N.F.A.R.M. is a site-specific work in progress about a harmonious, sustainable relationship between humankind and the natural environment. Art-in-nature interventions in the landscape shape an educational site for observational astronomy where ephemeral earthworks based on geometric configurations establish representations of cosmological theory on a mathematical universe; it encompasses several thought processes, theories, disciplines as well as hybrid practices of making and moving. Drawn from cosmology, observational astronomy, and philosophy, S.U.N.F.A.R.M. consists of excavated earthworks, large-scale environments and above-ground constructions: the sun’s daily path is represented, literally and metaphorically, by two spirals connected by a ¾ mile-long axis. The two intersecting spirals make a cosmography inscribed in the landscape, where different architectural interventions are both metaphors and literal expressions of celestial phenomena and place is a “topology of being”.    Several narratives are involved: ideation concepts are expressed in writings and diagrams, representations and digital models, images, and computer-generated animations. Astronomical diagrams, charts, time-lapse photographs, and videos are not only documentation and presentation tools but also enhance the perception of the artworks. External links:
