The Children of the stars
Stellar composition for visitors, sensors, loudspeakers, computers, and videoprojectors
Wal and ground projections
Dust and gas
Stars are born out of a cloud of dust and gas. After countless interactions and billions of years, planets have flared out. Collisions, frictions, and large scale perturbations produce planetary systems, which, for some of them, will become the cradle for life. The Children of the stars take back time and space so beyond the clouds everyone can, even before acting, interacting. A stellar system accompanies every visitor in a rather messy path of the deep universe.

The Children of the stars rely on real-time capture and processing of the visitors' position and motion in the three-dimensional space of the visitors. The measurements of sixteen sensors, distributed at the periphery and independently controlled by a processing unit, ensure everyone's interaction and coupling to the surrounding deep universe and the visitors who are crossing the space.
