Starry Night

An urban installation designed to raise the awareness to Light-Pollution. This type of pollution occurs due to excessive and obtrusive outdoor lighting. It obscures the stars in the night sky and interferes with astronomical observatories. Moreover, it disrupts ecosystems and can cause adverse health effects. The “Starry-Night” structure is designed to direct our gaze upwards, to remind us of the night-entity which is spread above our heads. A circle opening in the roof frames a segment of the city’s night sky. An encircled screen on its side displays the sky as seen in another place, free of light pollution – for example a desert.
