Created in collaboration with 88 7-17 year-old campers, London-based architect Matthew Springett’s [2] Navigating Dreams is a beautiful installation of an imagined night sky comprised of LED constellations [3]. 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 [4] about the Navigating Dreams project after the jump.

The Navigating Dreams installation was designed specifically for the Beam Camp [7], 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.
