The Urban Stargazing project focuses on bringing back the stars in the city sky by recreating existing constellations and adding new ones, narrating old and contemporary myths about their respective geolocations.
Over time, society has developed a complex rhythm that demands we live in an environment artificially lit twenty-four hours a day preventing us from experiencing the natural lights coming from billions of light years away, shining and twinkling as soon as the Sun sets to the west.
During the summer of 2011, twelve groups of stars were installed at different locations in the city of London, and could only be observed by the naked eye at night time. Along with the installations, an astronomical map of the reclaimed sky was given to the public, detailing each constellation with its latitude/longitude coordinates.
The map showing their location along with their meanings can be found here.
