New to Lumiere

The Stars Come Out at Night

Stellar Projects (UK)

Soundtrack: Oliver Vibrans

Location: Walkergate

A revolving universe of twinkling stars

Capturing the beauty and wonder of the night sky, The Stars Come Out at Night brings the sparkle of starlight down to earth. The installation gently rotates casting a universe of stars across the ground, just like the night-time projectors that soothed many of us to sleep as children. The piece is accompanied by an original soundtrack by Oliver Vibrans.
