Geometrikon "Different Skies"

Some years ago a group of my ambient and prog rock fan friends held an annual meeting at a fabulous futuristic resort place in Arizona called "Arcosanti." They would schlep as much sound gear as they could and jam for a week as well as socialize and get a bit rowdy. At the end of the week they would put on a concert for themselves and for the people staying at the resort. The name of the festival was "Different Skies" and most of their concerts have been preserved in digital files as fond memories of their favorite times playing in the band. I don't think they hold this event any more.This geometrikon is called "Different Skies" because each cell of the geometrikon depicts another manifestation of the sky, from bright daylight blue and clouds to red and pink sunsets to dark night. Sharp eyes might pick up the shape of my recent "Ruby Towers" with a bit added to it and re-colored.
