Navigating by the Stars

Commission for Unboxed UK‘s Green Space Dark Skies Cairngorm National Park film project led by Walk the Plank.

Part of a nationwide series of short films celebrating rights of way and access to the landscape. The project brought over 300 people together to experience the outdoors and participate in a light installation work using specially designed eco lamps. The project involved community engagement workshops, outdoor experiences, art and music that lead up to the evening light work being created en mass.

The Star Sails were created by several groups of participants as a backdrop for the film and as a legacy project for the venue. Symbols from land and star maps were used to highlight navigation as a theme.

A documentary was screened on BBC’s Countryfile in the autumn of 2022.

All the films or can be viewed on the green space dark skies website and You Tube.
