Constellation-Mimicking Projects

I have always been a lover of the night sky, so the ‘Reflecting The Stars’ project is something that I can wholeheartedly backup. Bringing awareness to the idea of light pollution, it is an interactive art installation that mimics constellations in the sky.

Taking place “among 250 decaying pier posts in New York City’s Pier 49 in Manhattan,” according to Psfk.com, it invites people to press buttons that will trigger the solar-powered LED lights to create specific star formations. Running from August to November 2010, ‘Reflecting The Stars’ expects to attract 2.5 million visitors. Will you be one of them?
