Beginning in June 2015, a new constellation will rise nightly above a small island in the middle of the Hudson River, fifty​ miles north of New York City. Every evening as the sun goes down, starry points of light will emerge one by one with the stars of the night sky above the Bannermans' Castle ruin between Cold Spring and Beacon, NY.

Constellation, the book, accompanies this mysterious but sublime installation, both as an extension and artifact of the project. The book is a visual and literary dialogue between artist Melissa McGill and several celebrated writers and poets, using the artwork as a springboard for inspiration and collaboration.
