“Shooting Thoughts” is an interactive projection where people generate a constellation of stars by sending their thoughts with a mobile device. Connected to lasers, each thought becomes a shooting star that reaches its galaxy by using all the possible paths the architecture allows. In this case, the pillars of Saint-Eustache Church are used as launch stations that carry the star to its final destination on the ceiling via the arches and vaults. Like all of us, each star finds its place at its own speed with its individual trajectory.
