How would you like to explore the galaxy? Travel to faraway stars and nebulas, and maybe even see some alien life forms… Just take a trip through Porta Estellar and you’ll be transported light years away and back in just six Earth-minutes. It’s housed inside of an old DC-9 airplane. And while it doesn’t leave the ground, some attendees said that this light show did actually make them feel that they had taken flight.
Porta Estellar, Catalan for “Star Gate,” is a completely immersive installation that uses light and sound to transport those who enter the salvaged airplane. The installation was designed and constructed by Eloi Maduell and Santi Vilanova of Playmodes, in collaboration with the owner of the plane, Eduardo Cajal.
