Wandering Stars is a colorful, chaotic ‘swarm’ of elements that invite interactivity and celebration at one of the Modern Streetcar stops in Tucson. The piece is composed of two bands of stars flanking on the east and west sides of the streetcar stop. A ‘flock’ of triangular forms are frozen in motion and work together through touch sensitive design components. Each triangle is influenced by those adjoining it, creating a vibrant ‘flow’ of color and light patterns throughout the work.


Wandering Stars was a collaboration between Joe O'Connell, Blessing Hancock and Creative Machines.
