The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff. – Carl Sagan
The systematic confrontation of subjects self-esteem worthy to be represented, corresponds directly to the reflection of the functional perception in representation. Once abolished techniques and representational function, anybody and therefore everybody, can become the technique in a reflective form. - Anonymous
Star Dust intervenes in public space with the instalation of a performative platform that will surprise citizens, through an unexpected interaction that aims to provide a positive disruption in daily routine. Headphones are placed over a wooden display stand at a given location. Folowing the premise "enjoy life", communication will be estabilished with the participants and progressively turns them also into performers, thus establishing an intimate relationship, both private and public with whom participates.
