Starlight is a modest sculptural installation that was installed at Burning Man 2012 and four other festivals. Seven twelve foot diameter plywood stars were placed in the Black Rock desert mapping out the constellation Orion, creating a sense of place and a "heaven on earth" effect. Starlight was a do it yourself project designed by a few but constructed and funded by many. The stars are designed to look good day and night and to appeal from great distances in order to draw in the curious. Repetition, scale and tension are used to combat the overwhelming scale of the Black Rock desert while getting the most from a crowdsourced budget of roughly $5,000. The stars were constructed of plywood and fir blocking. Each star was given its own unique lighting pattern. Panels and patterns on the stars were cut by CNC.
