Universe

Universe, the wall painting was created as part of the Šareno gradsko kupalište (Colorful City Bath) project in Slavonski Brod. A mural measuring approximately 500x400cm shows the constellations of stars in the sky recorded on 15.8. during creative activities at the Malo gradsko kupalište (Small Town Bath). The idea was born out of a need for an educational character, to publish awareness of the greatness and beauty of the starry sky that we all miss so much.

Constellations were explored using the "Star Walk 2" mobile applications. We used simple visual elements: dots, lines and colors to represent them.

Art piece is interactive and invites audience to enter the paint space to notice details, names of stars and constellations, and to move away from everyday life and unit with the infinite Universe. Many people from several European countries were photographed in this small universe and some decided to practice yoga and dance, which was extremely pleasing.

Except to being visible in daylight, there are stars visible at night. Specifically, we invite the audience to search for the glowing stars that need to be recharged in order to be used in the magic of the night sky. If you enjoyed viewing it as much as we did creating this mural, our mission is complete :-)
