The project is a `cross section` of a moment in the airspace. The box, pre-filled with nutrient agar for microbiology, contains microorganisms present in the air. Once left open for minutes, it is afterwards sealed and the microorganisms begin to grow. In a few days, they form an abstract image that contains visual information reflecting life in the air at that particular time.
According to a study published in 2009 , the organization of the constellations in the starry night sky can be explained by various methods of computer geometry, following certain rules for connect a random group of points. Using the logic of the study, Delaunay's triangulation is used to turn colonies of bacteria that have grown in the nutrient medium into a starry map composed of different groups of constellations. In this way, the project tries to look for hidden information, to dissect a moment in space.
