Skyscapes are a combination of landscape, sky, and people in the context of a full place experience including the temporal dimension. When a viewer becomes aware of rhythms in sky and environments, memories and history unravel. The viewer enters a dialogue with place and experiences the skyscape through watching, allowing the exploration of its meaning. This project is an interdisciplinary approach towards skyscape through deeper engagement with the place of Clifton campus at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). A phenomenological approach will identify locations that reveal memories and an affectional dimension. The panorama will be implemented into a planetarium software (Stellarium) to experience the passage of celestial objects in time, and reveal rhythms and cycles through which the Clifton campus defines itself. Essentially, it will illutstare how place and therefore skyscape is explored.
