Angela Bulloch's Night Sky works rely on computer simulation algorithms to generate views of the universe from positions other than Earth. They belong to a body of works that is dealing with different kinds of visual representations of the Earth, our solar system and the universe. The concept of the Night Sky is based on a space travel simulation software called Celestia, which is used in planetariums. The lightning of the stars and planets is based on algorithms and commands that the artist programmed.
