Experiencing the atmosphere of a comet
Creative Strategy: David Delgado and Dan Goods (NASA/ JPL)

Metamorphosis, a glowing, 12-foot-long steel sculpture shrouded in fine mist, is a representation of a real comet known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This comet is the target of the Rosetta Mission, the first ever to make a soft landing on a comet and study its chemical composition.
This sculpture celebrates the Rosetta Mission and aims to spark curiosity about comets and how they behave. Lit from within and emitting clouds of mist and water vapor, Metamorphosis evokes the glow and atmosphere of comets, which produce light, gas, and dust when heated by the Sun.
