Inspired by the Boötes Constellation, coined by Homer in the Odyssey was often associated with animals and used as a celestial reference point for navigation. The rich history and mythologies that developed around its contents recalled another myth of the magpie that is drawn to shiny objects. I combined these two ideas to explore the way storytelling influences our understanding of the world whether true or false. In this piece, I imagined what bird migration might look if viewed by one of the many Greek gods which were thought to be turned into a star to forever live and create the constellations that today contain our fourth brightest star in the night sky.
