Stary Night

Installation Proposal, 2004/13

360 degree Projection-mapping & 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, the hero's journey (The Iliad and The Odyssey) navigating under the stars.

- Video 360? Projection-mapping of the night sky with the northern night sky over Area 51, meteor showers and Aurora Borealis layered on.

- Green Astroturf

- Pick-nick table with two lawn chairs and popcorn maker with bags of popcorn.

- Red tent, with a copy of The Iliad and The Odyssey, and National Geographic and Astronomy magazines; a VCR and TV with tapes of original Star Trek, Star Trek: the Motion Picture, In Search Of, as well as various Nuclear Test videos.
