The Planetarium Must Be Built!
/The Planetarium Must Be Built!/ is a low-fidelity simulation of one
year of ritual walks on the Bodmin Moor Zodiac. The Zodiac is a mythical
system which has been created by extensive fieldwork on Bodmin Moor
using technology such as GPS satellite data to empirically verify
visualised landscape symbols. It is presented in the form of a geodesic
dome, containing multiple CD players, each one playing a recording of a
ritual walks. Each CD player is placed in a circle on an aerial
photograph which maps both the place and time of the walk. Visitors to
the installation experience a unique time-based interaction with
recorded material. Visual elements such as a DVD slideshow, a kinetic
planetarium sculpture lit in ultraviolet light; and removable elements
such as books and maps feature in the installation.
