In this map of the stars directly above the Music Hall, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.

Ray Interactive is an art and design studio that specialises in interactive experiences with an emphasis on bespoke creative coding. There portfolio includes device art, immersive expanded cinema events and an ever curious collection of creative technology experiments.
