If you have lived in a metropolitan area all your life, you may not have known that in some parts of the world, one can see little points of light in the night sky. These are called stars.
This Friday, you will be able to see stars in Toronto! Those crazy kids at Newmindspace are putting together a twinkly, glowing installation of LED’s and helium to create an artificial starscape, along with several other interactive installations on Front Campus at the University of Toronto. Inspired in part by Burning Man, the evening should recall the feeling of being out on the playa and gazing into the electric sky.
Night Lights participants are encouraged to bring their own glowing objects and light up the ground as they gaze skyward at the ad-hoc constellations. More guest artists, like Pearl Chen’s (fly)light, are sought.
