I want to focus on the night sky around Pensacola, especially the difference between the sky in the woods, near the city, and near the water. I want to show the difference between the amount of starlight we can see if the different areas and how it correlates to the number of people or human touch the area has.
I will be collecting images and videos of the night sky in specific areas. I will take my exact location for each spot and go to them at least once every week to collect my data. I will also be recording the sounds of the areas that I am in. I will not be making noise, and will only let my environment supply the noise for me. I will also be collecting different objects from my environments, and I will be looking for what type of lights are used in these areas to see if these have different effects on the night sky.
- I would like to make a sort of enclosed area that would use either a "fake" hologram to show my night sky (that will be collages of the pictures and videos that I take) or a light board showing the layout of the stars we can and cant see. While these are being displayed I will have the audio playing as a way of knowing where the sky is in Pensacola.
- I will also use the samples of the environment around me I took to make miniature recreations of the places I was collecting my data. There will be little buttons for people to push to make the lights turn on to show the recreations.
