Reach for the Stars is an interactive light show. When the ropes are pulled, the constellation of the stars change. This creates a dazzling light show. It was exhibited at The ‘Night of Art and Science’ in the beautiful star observatory in Leiden and at VOID (Media technology).
The installation is a “chandelier” (2,5×2,5 meter) with 30 hanging stars thread ranging from 1 to 3 meter long. From the chandelier 6 ropes com down to the floor. When these are pulled a light flash emerges and changes the composition of the stars. One rope makes them more red but less tinkly, other one changes the background animation and makes them move slower. Never are the stars in the sky the same.
