The Planetarium in Stromovka Park in Prague/CZ is one of the largest in the world. Constellations of stars and planets, or a clear view of the night sky without light pollution, are portrayed in the domed hall. On the occasion of Festival Spectaculare 2015, a festival of music and art in the Czech capital, the starry sky projected onto the dome was turned into a series of alien landscapes, apocalyptic scenarios, and mythical creatures.


These were designed and realised by the Czech artists Dan Gregor and Dalibor Cée from Initi, a multidisciplinary artist collective, using video-mapping techniques in 4K resolution. Alien-sounding, ambient electronic music designed by the Norwegian musician Biosphere accompanied visitors on their one-hour long journey. The Planetarium installation engaged viewers through practically all their senses – from sight and sound to a sense of wonder.
