During this visit to sensorium, the Earth has traveled km around the sun.

On the night of August 12 every year, you can see pinpoints of light fly through the night sky everywhere in the world. These are dust particles that lie in the path of the earth as it speeds through its orbit around the sun. The particles burn up in our upper atmosphere, becoming what we have come to know as shooting stars. It just so happens that the point through which the earth passes on August 12 is full of these particles.

For the astronomical show called the Perseid meteor shower, sensorium and artist KINOCLINIC have come together for a collaborative project. The title of this project is "The Star Songs".

Letting your thoughts drift through the secrets of the universe, enjoy these beautiful images and verses!
