Hemisphaíron

Hemisphaírion assumes that the distance between one place in the world and another transforms our experiences. Although they’re under the same sky, the northern and southern hemispheres have been shaped by distinct political, cultural and economical factors. In order to value this difference of perspective, this project uses storytelling and motion-graphics as strategies to explore alternative ways of communicating scientific astronomy knowledge.

 

With a pedagogical approach featuring mainly visual content, Hemisphaírion is suitable for children and young people. In order to promote literacy in Astronomy in Portuguese-speaking countries, Hemisphaíron partnered with the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço [Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences] to point out some of the different ways of looking at the sky from each hemisphere, and also to mention several scientific discoveries over time.
