multimedia installation

space requirements:
40 x 40 x 40 centimeters

I combined the installation with the kind of sky monitor used in astronomical devices, with the difference that this not only compensates the daily revolution of the Earth, but also its circulation around the Sun. Placing the Sun in the optical focal point, the device continuously follows the relative movement of our star, gradually tracing its orbit.

This installation explores the medium of astronomical telescope by reversing its basic function. What happens if the main optical element of the telescope, the parabolic mirror, is not used to create an image by focusing into a single point the light rays arriving from infinity, but, conversely, the parallel light rays of a luminare placed in the focal point is relayed to infinity?
