This app is meant to be an artwork part of a story referring to other already existing narratives and drawing from practices similar to tributes and fan fiction. Artist Valinia Svoronou has developed this astronomy/ stargazing app, with the technical support of Aias Kokkalis as a platform to deploy a story that will take place within celestial events in 2020, starting with the penumbral lunar eclipse taking place on the 10th of January. The app is informed by several concepts around the construction of myths surrounding zodiac constellations and their utility as means of navigation across the centuries. The underlying narrative of the app takes the ancient Greek myth of Endymion and some contemporary iterations as a point of departure to explore and dismantle romantic ideas now rendered obsolete around historical exchanges between the east and the west in relationship to the contemporary world.
