slide series and 3D animation, 2005

The skyearth-motifs are collages of photographs of cosmic objects like star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Those were arranged to form structures which remind of islands and whole continents and together build up sort of a map.
Emphasized by the chosen perspective, the observer has the impression of looking from an aeroplane or a spaceshuttle onto an earth-like planet at night - the cosmic light phenomena now looking like the luminous structures of civilization.
The video consists of sequences of circle flights above the nocturnal landscapes. The sound originates in the computer on which the video was created and reminds of the noise from an engine.
