This presentation explores thematic connections between constellations (their perception and representation) and contemporary reading strategies involving works of art, visual literature and poetry, experimental media, and information graphics. Accompanying original software demonstrates the potential of the planetarium as a visualization medium for a wide-range of creative projects.

Filmed November 6, 2014 during the 47th International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA) conference at the Toledo Museum of Art. Produced by Penta Career Center.
