EarthStar, by David Hines e Joyce Hinterding, examines the elementary, mystical qualities of the sun. Installation visitors are treated to an up-close-and-personal encounter—seeing, hearing and smelling the heavenly body that dominates our solar system. A hydrogen-alpha telescope captures fantastic images of the sun’s chromosphere; VLF antennas pick up the star’s radiation, which is converted by an amplifier into a soundtrack. And while all that’s going on, the installation space is being suffused with synthetic aromas meant to suggest ozone.

EarthStar received an Award of Distinction from Prix Ars Electronica 2009, in the Hybrid Art category and it’s currently installed in Linz (Cyberarts exhibition, OK Centrum. 3-09-09 / 4-10-09).
