Floating stars

Only in the dark can you see the stars. Portuguese collective OCUBO invites you to enter an interactive installation and then add a floating candle to a pool of water. The candle’s journey is transferred real-time into a projection on the walls of the vacant store, allowing you to quietly enjoy the patterns produced by the candle’s journey on the water. Without an audience, nothing happens. The spectators not only watch but are the ‘creators’ of a small and temporary universe of analogue and digital means. 


OCUBO realizes light and media art installations all over the world. Driving force Carole Purnelle has studied Fine Art, Art & Design and Media Arts in Liege, New York, and Portsmouth.
