Wilhelm’s log, stardate 201508. 6: This is a homage to the great Leonard Nimoy who passed away on February 27, 2015. The actor and singer (The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins) was best known for the role as Mr. Spock of the classic “Star Trek” series. One great episodes was “Obsession”. A cloud creature that absorbing red corpuscles and was unhappy with Spock’s green Vulcan blood. So on this “remake” you can also see that the creature that now absorbing the colours of the city will not come to close anymore to the Vulcan ears of Mr. Spock 🙂
Behind the scene: The location is the 51 meter high tower of the Urania public observatory in Zürich. The ears of Spock were created for the festival “Aufsehen” by artist Annemarie Bucher and Stephan Dübi. One ear has a size of 13 meters and a weight of 100 kilo.
