Design, Writing

 

Star Centos was a virtual tour of the stars in accompaniment with centos written and performed by poets Keith S. Wilson and Cristina Correa. In collaboration with the Adler Planetarium, projections of the constellations (Andromeda, Cygnus, Medusa, and Orion) were projected in 360° on the Grainger Sky Theatre visualization dome. Further images for the projection were chosen from Adler Planetarium Collections.

The digital presentation/performance was created for Ekphest, a festival in celebration of ekphrastic art (art in response to other art forms) in partnership between nationally recognized Chicago poets and a number of participating Chicago museums and institutions.
