By entering a completely dark room, one discerns numerous tiny dots of light, resembling starry skies. As the viewer moves, these stars begin to appear and disappear; like fireflies, they move in a whirling fashion following his/ her pace. The light dots seem to be indefinitely high up in the space, moving away from the viewer towards the infinity.
Three layers of monofilament are stretched horizontally on the aluminium construction and suspended from the ceiling. Geometric structure of the monofilament nets is based on superimposed polygonal grids. Eight LED lights are placed above the nets, in different areas, projecting light onto them and forming a star-like, ever-changing constellation.
