In 2002, a dull star in an obscure constellation suddenly became 600.000 times more luminous than our Sun, temporarily making it the brightest star in our Milky Way galaxy. This star was V838 Monocerotis, a red star in the constellation of Monoceros, located about 20.000 light years from the Earth. The star put out enough energy in a brief flash to illuminate surrounding dust and presumably ejected the illuminated dust shells in previous outbursts.

.monocerotis is a real time generative installation inspired by this bright red star, running in a custom software built in Java/Processing language. The custom physics engine simulate the real physic laws, and the camera, acting like a satellite, rotates around the star’s orbit. In this way it gives to the viewer always a different point of view.
