Starlight…

Starlight is a modest sculptural installation that was installed at Burning Man 2012 and other festivals.  Seven twelve foot diameter plywood stars were placed in the Black Rock desert mapping out the constellation Orion, creating a sense of place and a “heaven on earth” effect.  Starlight was a do it yourself project designed by a few but constructed and funded by many.  The stars were designed to look good day and night and to appeal from great distances in order to draw in the curious.  Repetition, scale and tension are used to combat the overwhelming scale of the Black Rock desert  while getting the most from a budget of roughly $5,000.  Starlight – Erich Remash, Jeremy Berglund, Don Peterson + Chad Ingle…More images at remash.

WHEN I heard the learn’d astronomer;  When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;  When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;  When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,  How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,  In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,  Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. - Walt Whitman
