    Path to the Stars – Eduardo Fernando Duwe (Brazil) proposes listening to existing satellites by radio and building a new local one, a “social sculpture” that questions and revisits space imaginaries in the context of the small rural community of San José de Barreiro. The satellite becomes an object that catalyses and materialises the popular dream of space exploration, reclaiming it from hegemonic imaginaries and provoking a process of decolonisation. The artist plans to work with members of the local community to construct the artefact and ritualize its launch. The work with space imaginaries, the participation of the community, the exercises of satellite listening and the quality of the previous works of the artist were appreciated by the jury.”
