Ocubo: Floating stars
Floating stars, 2020
Floating Stars is a participatory installation that is subject to constant change through interaction with the audience, constantly changing and growing. In a water basin visitors have the possibility to let tea lights float, which carry wishes or thoughts.
The water surface and the tea lights are filmed and projected in real time onto the opposite house facade. The work combines analogue and digital techniques. The installation is complemented by a composition of the Portuguese musician Luís Cília.
The basin is a metaphor for the sky, the lights represent the stars.
We are all part of the universe and as such connected to each other. The installation encourages to participate in the project and thus to get in touch with the other, each is part of a whole.
