Abstract:

  • DarkStar is an interactive sculpture for public space that generates an audio/visual interpretation of its direct and indirect surroundings. The installation is a huge sphere that reflects moon phases, counts minutes and interacts with the public. The size of the illuminated part of the Moon equals the illuminated part of DarkStar. The illuminated part then reflects the movements of people in its immediate surroundings, as it lights up when people come closer and their signals (audio, cell phones, wifi, etc.) are translated into light patterns. The installation thus reacts to the space it is situated in but also to stellar developments and virtual data from the web.
