{.:.the beauty isn’t just in looking at the stars; it’s in choosing to do so when you have other options.:.}

Today, in my usual blog searching, I found a beautiful project. Oscar Lhermitte, a London-city-dweller, noticed that no one in London could see the stars (this goes for most metropolitan areas), and decided to “recreate the missing stars in London”–though they are not real stars, his project can share in the beauty found just above The Smoke.

Lhermitte got his funding from The London Chapter of the Awesome Foundation (how cool is that name?!) and created his “stars” from balloons, LED lights, and remote control devices.

Check out this amazing video with footage of his project, as well as some of the viewer’s responses: http://vimeo.com/11602702
