Since the dawn of humanity, trough all the history, the stars have guide men. Sailing by the sea or crossing the desert we have find the path looking to the sky. All cultures have named the stars, but we use today many names that come from islamic astronomers that gave them arabic names. Ancient Babylonians grouped stars into constellaRons and the sky become a canvas where astronomers traced lines between the stars, painting the night with their legends and myths.
This sculpture, THE STARS, represent the human desire of reach the sky and use it as a canvas where we can paint our dreams. It is experienced in very different ways depending if it ́s watched by day or night. By day the sculpture evokes the structure of the skies, the scaffolding which supports the infinite space of the universe. The corten steel structure runs throughout the space creating voids and relations between then. By night light points and light lines appear represenRng the stars and the constellations that they create. The sculpture, as the stars and constellations that represents, serves as a guide to the traveler towards the city of Doha.
