Golden Spheres

As a Gift to the Universe.

The Artwork

Imagine you have the opportunity, through a work of art enduring for millennia, radiant and immutable, to express your gratitude for your existence and the beauty of our world back to the universe that created you!!!?  Full Document

"Golden Spheres" by Niclas Castello is an idea to communicate, through an artwork, the gratitude of each individual human being for our beautiful, unique planet to the spirit of the universe.

Exactly 1,000 of these spheres will be created, and they will connect the community of 1,000 creators for all time. The spheres will be passed down like wanderers through millennia of humanity, each in memory of the first, whose wish created it.

Each sphere is dedicated to a celestial phenomenon. All the stars, myths, and gods of all times have been brought to the heavens by humans and watch us from there upon the earth. To realize this vision in the artwork, the artist will hand-craft the surface of each individual sphere. They will be unique and individual, like the respective human whose wish brings this sphere into existence.

The noblest thoughts are manifested in the noblest material. Pure, clean .999 fine gold. Cast into a perfect, round ball, each one kilogram in weight, this artwork will carry and convey humanity's thanks to the universe even in millions of years. However, gold is also the softest metal. It is fragile and malleable, just like our planet Earth. Only our mindfulness and handling in gratitude will preserve these creations for future generations.

Thus, these spheres are a symbol of eternity. They are a gift to the universe. They are our way of telling the universe: "We were here. We have loved, dreamed, and created. And this is our eternal gift to you."

Born to be Alive

With your donation, you support SQARES & Niclas Castello’s global environmental project to save dying forests born to be alive. A focus of the project, due to current events, is on the forests in Central and Southern Germany. Specifically, the forests of the central uplands are experiencing the largest natural disaster in 300 years, a bark beetle epidemic that has currently devastated a large part of the Thuringian Forest. This is a catastrophe right on our doorstep, yet it is only the visible impact of a global issue. Due to warming and drought, the trees are weakened, lacking the natural defenses to cope with pest infestation as they have for centuries. Our reforestation project for destroyed forests is meant to contribute to planting new, biodiverse forests in Germany and in all affected regions of the world.
