invert the stars with the earth: Global Astronomy Month at MACRO Museum of rome

On April 28th, 2012, AOS will be at the MACRO museum in Rome with this.astro and Come in Cielo Così in Terra, an installation and a workshop created in occasion of the Global Astronomy Month.


THIS.ASTRO generates a star-filled sky in real time: each star is an interaction on social networks; stars join together to form evolving constellations, according to the ways in which people take part in discussions online. A peculiar User-Generated Horoscope in which the destiny of human beings (e.g.: the shapes and positions of constellations) is determined by the ways in which people collaborate.

Come in Cielo Così in Terra is a workshop in which we will bring the sky into the streets of our cities. A free/libre application will be created/used during the workshop allowing people to form groups, select a constellation and draw it onto the streets of the city of Rome by walking through it, in a city-wide GPS-based drawing performed collaboratively with our bodies. An investigation oncollaboration, ubiquitous technologies, collaboration, and the new ways of experiencing cities and the relations with our fellow human beings.
