STAR* is a “spiritual landmark”.
The intention is to create a relationship between people and places.
Like an asterisk, outside the pages of a novel, it refers to something expressed elsewhere, as a kind of landmark between the host site and its wider meaning.
It can connect lives, loves, memories and events.
Asterisks are a device often used by many nineteenth-century novelists, who censured certain locations out of discretion towards their characters. Many critics view the presence of asterisks in what they read as a challenge to find these places censored with asterisks in reality.
STAR* is the secret shared by the few people who know its meaning and the challenge facing those who would like to.
