Commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company, the set up is made up of 2000 hand-folded steel stars.

The artist took inspiration from the masses of references to stars in Shakespeare’s writings.

The 2000 stainless steel stars are suspended from the ceiling to compose a 3m righteous (over 9 ft righteous), third-dimensional human face.

Surrounding the face are more steel stars, which loosely mediate the residing of the constellations on Shakespeare’s birthday.
