Location: River Oaks District
Throughout our lives we all go through so many ch-ch-ch-changes. It seems to be our instinct to resist change and it is also our instinct to seek change. We obviously welcome changes that positively affect our lives, and not changes that negatively affect us. One thing for sure, change is inevitable. Even though change can be scary, it’s what opens up new paths in our lives.
We shot these photos among the amazing SkyWaves installation at River Oaks District. SkyWaves is a creative collaboration between River Oaks District and Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. The site-specific installation was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission which put mankind on the moon on July 20, 1969. This event is clearly one of the biggest representations of change.
Inspired by the Mylar space blankets designed by NASA in 1964, each of the four 50-foot SkyWaves quadrants is made of over 1,000 hand-cut flags, referencing the first U.S. flag planted on the moon by astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. Produced by local creative studio MATTER, SkyWaves took a team of 15 people over 2,400 hours to build.
