It’s a city by the sea – boats.
Ships that constantly navigate the waters and navigate by the stars.
And the stars are studied by stellar astronomers and astrophysicists.

A constellation is a group of stars that are visually linked together in a particular configuration. And while these stars may be unrelated in three-dimensional space, they can be grouped together when viewed from Earth in the night sky.
Thus, with 12 uniquely resonant stars grouped into constellations in the firmament, the Klaipėda Starcatchers are the keys that connect the past with the present and, to the cosmic music of Kristijonas Lučinskas, invite you to explore, discover, and create your own constellation.
