starlight’ by erich remash, jeremy berglund, don peterson and chad ingle is a modest sculptural installation that was presented
at burning man 2012 and four other festivals. seven twelve-foot diameter plywood stars were placed in the black rock desert
mapping out the constellation orion, creating a sense of place and a ‘heaven on earth’ effect. the stars are designed to appear
aesthetically pleasing during day and night, appealing from great distances in order to draw in curiousity. constructed of
CNC milled plywood and fir blocking patterns, repetition, scale and tension are used to combat the overwhelming scale of the
black rock desert. as a result, each star is given its own unique lighting pattern.
