Sternenschrift shows seven paths travelled by Bignia Wehrli’s father in late summer 2012 over the course of his workdays making hay in Sternenberg, as recorded by a GPS device. In the winter of 2014, using a camera and a specially developed instrument — the star pencil—the artist traced these paths with the light of a star. Using long exposure, the tracks of the star imprinted themselves on the negative.
