Earlier this year, our friends at Duke Kunshan University produced the school’s first mass-participation art project – an illuminated, nighttime campus procession along a route in the shape of the Big Dipper constellation.

The project was organized by student researchers in the Planetary Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Lab to coincide with a visit by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim.  The art project took place shortly after a screening of the Journey of the Universe film and was attended by freshmen, sophomores and other excited participants.
