Light installation

The 10,5 metre-high light installation is a contrast. During the lighter period of the day, it is peaceful and hides between the dark trunks of the trees around the park. Whereas, when darkness falls, it comes alive, shining and creating noise. The authors, Didzis Jaunzems and Viktors Keino will transform the beams from the stars into a large-scale programmable screen, synchronized with sound effects. Catch sight of the Black Star from afar and approach it to feel what it is like to reach for the stars!
