Created in collaboration with 88 7-17 year-old campers, London-based architect Matthew Springett’s Navigating Dreams is a beautiful installation of an imagined night sky comprised of LED constellations. The swirling constellations are controlled and navigated by a specially constructed land boat which when rowed, sets the lights in motion and allows campers and adults alike to take an “imagined journey through a stellar landscape.” View Jennifer Lauren Smith’s documentary film about the Navigating Dreams project after the jump.

The Navigating Dreams installation was designed specifically for the Beam Camp, where each year organizers seek out large-scale collaborative projects to be built by campers and staff at its 106-acre facility in New Hampshire. The 2013 Beam Project call-for-proposals opens on October 15.
