Night Sky is a dome recreating the experience of being under the stars on a clear night when standing below.
For this piece, I used materials that were available and ready to use, which didn't require further manipulation. My intention to reproduce a night sky comes from the desire to turn a universal and relatively privileged experience, such as looking at a sky full of stars, into a private and available one. I also understand this installation as an opportunity to free your mind from daily concerns and have a moment of peace.
