Maps of star constellations have been in use for thousands of years. However, how can these intricate diagrams be of any use to us in contemporary times when light pollution from towns and cities obliterates our view of the night sky above us? The closest things to stars you will see in a major city are the warning lights from cranes. Through this project, I have used these warning lights to design and create my own 'constellations'. The creations are based on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, Pestilence and Death. A warning in the skies depicting the impending destruction of the world.
