Making Star Light, Star Bright: How do you map stars onto a city?
Laura Kriefman founder of Hellion Trace will be with us to talk about Star Light, Star Bright and Hellion Trace’s processes and lessons learnt for creating a new city wide interactive installation for Oxford.
Imagine if the stars shone just for you.
Star Light, Star Bright maps the 7 star constellations that are visible above Oxford in January and February. With each star represented as individual, step activated lights, people work together to turn on a whole constellation. The constellations will be in 7 locations across the city. Winner of the Smart Oxford Playable City Commission 2017, this city-wide intervention brings life to dark winter streets, connecting strangers for a shared moment of discovery and wonder. Star Light, Star Bright creates colourful star maps for Oxford’s night sky - helping us find the starlight, shining bright.
Star Light Star Bright launches to the public on the 19th January 2018 and will run for 6 weeks.
Resident Laura Kriefman founder of Hellion Trace (formerly Guerilla Dance Project) will talk to us about Star Light, Star Bright, Hellion Trace’s processes and lessons learnt in creating a new city wide interactive installation for Oxford.
