STARvation is a series of interactive light installations in public spaces, aiming to raise awareness about light pollution, connecting us with our roots. 5 themes have been selected for each installation, themes/areas that own their origins and or inspiration to the stars.
'Culture' is the theme of the 4th installation. Taking place outside of the writers museum in Edinburgh, where the ground is full of famous quotes from scottish poets and writers, people was encouraged to choose any of the quotes and write down on a 'pos it' what they inspire them as well as new quotes. Then, every thought was lighted up next to the quote that inspired it. The more participation, the more similar to a dark sky full of stars seemed the space, where artificial light got the change of giving back that inspiration that nowadays is impossible to reach.
People not only participated during the installation, but during the days before through social media (actually someone used social media while the installation was having place).
