A JOURNEY THROUGH LITTLE STARS

journey 00

 

A “journey through little stars” is a web residence for Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) community, supported also by StarTalk community, created to engage different kind of people (amateurs, photographers) and from different countries, to develop an contemporary art project based on stars and constellations, because Nothing is more globalised of heaven, as now is the Internet, which as the sky envelops us all.
I ask to people that want to join some photos of constellations. With that photos I make some artworks, using different techniques, from photo-collage to installations… (here some examples).
Everything is transmitted with short videos, some recorded, some live…
5 stops (but maybe 3), to meet 3 or 5 different constellations…

Read here the terms and conditions...
