Smart Oxford : Playable City Commission

We invited innovators, technologists and creative people from around the world to submit a distinctive idea to help make Oxford more liveable, open and collaborative city.

Making use of the city’s existing infrastructure and smart city technologies,the winning entry Star Light, Star Bright will put people and play at the heart of the city and catch the imagination of those who live, study, visit and work in and around Oxford.

Star Light, Star Bright maps the 7 star constellations that are visible above Oxford in January and February. With each star represented as individual, step activated lights, people work together to turn on a whole constellation. The constellations will be in 7 locations across the city. Star Light, Star Bright will bring life to dark winter streets, connecting strangers for a shared moment of discovery and wonder by creating colourful star maps for Oxford’s night sky. Help us find the starlight, shining bright.

Launched to the public on the 19th January 2018, Star Light Star Bright will run for 6 weeks.
