Darkstar is a multi-annual artistic research project which joined creators from various fields in the research and development of a contemporary, interactive and mobile monument for public space. DarkStar is designed as an open platform for technological, architectural, sound and graphic innovations.

Between 2011 and 2015, DarkStar joined more than 30 artists, programmers, architects and musicians, who worked collaboratively towards the realisation of its different versions. The underlying mission of DarkStar was to experiment with the possibilities of creating a contemporary interactive monument and to redefine the role of monuments today.
