House of Fubb was fabricated using the Robotics Lab at The Center.
On November 12 from 4-6pm Cliff Baldwin will celebrate FUBB with a music performance of The Kepler Music – Songs From the Milky Way. The musical score is transcribed from signals of distant exoplanets and their stars.
The House of FUBB is an astro-viewing pavilion designed for public enjoyment and celestial observation. The artist has invented a custom typeface perfectly suited to large architectural projects. FUBB, the name that the artist has given to Exoplanet 452b is an earthlike planet discovered in the Milky Way in 1995. It exists 1400 light years away. The language of space and time come together with the House of FUBB.
The Kepler Music – Songs from the Milky Way were written by Baldwin from data describing planet 452b. The Kepler Music will be available for download at www.wpunj.edu/centerfornewart/KeplerFubb and at the artist’s website cliffbaldwin.com
