New Constellations is a site-specific mural project that was created as an Artist in Residence with Google at their Mountain View campus. Made by using locally-sourced stones and dirt from Mountain View to create large-scale cyanotype blueprints, the large celestial piece features “new constellations” of influential (and often overlooked) women in the history of STEM.
Viewers can take printed books with “star map” covers and informational pages to find the constellations embedded in the mural. They may also use an augmented reality app on their device, specifically developed for the mural, to scan over the mural and see the constellations and information appear. The project included a public cyanotype workshop and artist talk about the relationship between art and science.
