Venue: ADIL SHAH PALACE, PANJIM
Time: 10:30 – 18:30
The Universe is a big, big place. But how big is it exactly? And how do we determine its size? The installation is aimed at expressing the vastness of the universe. How much is known and how much is left to be explored by us about this Universe. This is as far as we can see into the universe. It is time, not space, which limits our view.
Cosmic Consciousness is a series of frames that together form the night sky at a realistic scale. The frames are arranged to depict light years as distances between the celestial bodies. Through the use of lighting and interactive features, this installation acts as a learning tool where people may familiarize themselves with constellations and the stars at an intimate level, and yet perceive the grandiose nature of space and its distances.
