2.5 million visitors, poster project of Climate Week NYC, 30,000 interactions
Reflecting the Stars attached custom wirelessly-controlled solar-powered LEDs to the decaying posts of Pier 49 in the Hudson River to recreate our night sky. Nightly, lights twinkled in various patterns as the tides concealed and revealed our LED stars. Visitors pressed buttons highlighting constellations, no longer seen in urban centers because of air and light pollution.
