*THIS.ASTRO* generates a star-filled sky in real time: each star is an
interaction on social networks; stars join together to form evolving
constellations, according to the ways in which people take part in
discussions online. A peculiar *User-Generated Horoscope* in which the
destiny of human beings (e.g.: the shapes and positions of constellations)
is determined by the ways in which people collaborate.

*Come in Cielo Così in Terra* is a *workshop* in which we will bring the
sky into the streets of our cities. A free/libre application will be
created/used during the workshop allowing people to *form groups, select a
constellation and draw it onto the streets of the city of Rome* by walking
through it, in *a city-wide GPS-based drawing performed collaboratively
with our bodies*. An investigation on*collaboration, ubiquitous
technologies, collaboration, and the new ways of experiencing cities and
the relations with our fellow human beings.*
