Event description

Description

We base our knowledge of the universe on science and scientific exactitude, but at the same time, we can’t help but use exotic drawings in the sky to orient our searching and predict future events. So what would happen if we moved to an entirely new context?

Let’s travel to Trappist-1, a ‘twin’ planet of Earth located 40 light years away and make an attempt to become familiar with the new sky.

During a highly interactive, conversational workshop experience you’ll be invited to draw your own imaginations upon random patterns taken from the Trappist sky. This will culminate in a group projection and discussion to establish what figures we shall elevate to the rank of constellations in this unknown environment, and ultimately create one of many possible alternative firmaments. The data collected will be added to the Archive of Potential Skies for later intervention.

The workshop will be led by artist Niccolò Moronato. The Star Survey is part of project Firmament, a scientific collaboration with Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, which allowed the artist to obtain the first photographic view of the sky from Trappist. The Star Survey was created by Niccolò Moronato and visual designer Marcelo Vendramel.
