in the Polytech Festival of Science, Art & Technology
Period: May 27-28, 2017

This installation is laid out capturing the moment of constellations from the antipode on the dates of the festival. Flowers as a metaphor of beauty of life in the universe, these constellations become illuminated with origami flowers.
