Stary Night

Installation Proposal, 2004/13

Single-channel Video & Installation

Starry Night is a simple installation recalling a childhood memory of time spent with a grandmother star gazing, a love of Astronomy, and wonder at the mysterious world beyond the small town. This begins a voyage both personal and epic, the dreams of a child traveling in magazines and science fiction stories, also the hero's journey of The Iliad and The Odyssey navigating under the stars.
