Dark Sky

Dark Sky exhibit at NHMU

Dark Sky is an immersive and interactive experience that addresses our dramatically changing night sky and the impacts it has on humans and animals.

The exhibit features:

  • An immersive threshold wrapped in a high-resolution image of the Milky Way
  • An interactive that allows visitors to control artificial light and observe the impact it has on the landscape
  • A “talk-back” opportunity inviting visitors to create a night sky and share it with others

Dark Sky was developed, designed, and fabricated by the Multi-disciplinary Design students at the University of Utah in partnership with NHMU and the Consortium for Dark Sky Studies.
