Celestial Poetry

Conceived during the Coronavirus quarantine in 2020 and inspired by paperplanes, we wanted to show that people can still connect and inspire each other regardless of us being socially distant.

This project is in its' early stages but we plan for it to depict a planet with hundreds of stars in its' orbit. Each star will represent a poem submitted by an anonymous user. A visitor to this system can use their desktop device to see the wider picture of the contributions from afar, but can also navigate to this system on their phones to read and submit individual stars using gestures.

This was a chance for us to create something artistic using three.js - a 3D JavaScript framework and Google's Cloud Firestore - a new realtime database system, new technologies to us during our time unable to work in our professional careers.

Project conceived and created by Matt Penlington and Sam Kennard .
