To mimic the colorful ribbons of light viewed in a polar aurora, tempera paint can be poured out onto a surface and manipulated by the force of gravity into unique glow-in-the-dark patterns. The addition of a landscape silhouette gives the viewer the information needed to perceive the paint pour as patterns in the night sky.
