Tau Ceti

When I attended the library conference in April, I passed Austin's tallest artwork.

I saw lots of people stopping to take photos.

Finally I had to give it a try.

It's 105 feet tall. It's a gradient color spectrum that extends up ten stories on the corner of a public parking garage. It's Tau Ceti by artist Josef Kristofoletti. The title comes from the name of a star in the constellation Cetus that is spectrally similar to our own star.

Here's a time lapse of Tau Ceti.

  1. That's awesome! I wish we'd beautify more of our city landscapes.

  2. Wow! I love that kind of urban art.

  3. This piece is very impressive. I loved that you included that time lapsed video. Really brought it to life. I imagine it would be hard ti upkeep though. It already seems to have lost its vividness and the gradients would be hard to match exactly. But what a beauty.

    1. We are starting to paint our house, and yesterday, when we went to get paint, we were told that the paint will fade.

      I can only imagine how much this piece will fade.

  4. That is amazing, and I love the colors.

  5. This facade decoration looks wonderful and very imaginative! I like it very much when cities become "colourful" in this way!

  6. WOW! How fabulous. I wish we had something as colorful as this in the area.

  7. That is so cool. Very nice.

  8. Gosh! Now that is some piece of art. Stunning and surreal. Thank you fr sharing with us (Esha and yours truly) on #WordlessWednesday.

    Lovely to see your unique link-ups.
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  9. That’s a big art. I like it! And the time lapse is cool. It makes me wish I had some artistic talent.
