A Galaxy of Suns
'A Galaxy of Suns' is an artwork expressed as a mobile application and associated choral performance that ‘plays’ the stars as they rise and set over 360˚ of the horizon – for any location on Earth.
The project is a collaboration across contemporary art, music, astronomy and design. Created by artist Michaela Gleave, composer Amanda Cole and programmer Warren Armstrong, Alter designed the visual identity, website and mobile app interface for the project.
A Galaxy of Suns premiered as the opening event for the 2016 Dark MOFO festival in Hobart, with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Chorus singing the stars live.
