Why imagine new constellations? People have always been fascinated by the enchanting chaos of the starry sky and have tried to introduce meaning, an order that can be called and recognized to bring this enigmatic universe closer together.
Each culture has created its own set of constellations based on its own mythology. These stellar figures, contoured, imagined from the very beginning a relationship with human fate, especially the zodiac constellations. We believe there is still an attraction for astrological interpretations, however scientific became the knowledge of our world.
Why can not we then draw other constellations expressing our desires and hopes? A symbolic gesture of plotting your own destiny reflected in the stars.
The map of the sky has long been shaped, defined and redefined as our knowledge has expanded. This mapping has its own history, with 88 constellations now recognized by the International Astronomical Union. We do not propose a telescopic rendering of the starry sky, but a random configuration of “stars” that can be united in the imagination of each individual in the desire to describe or rewrite their own destiny.
