The term planetoid has never been precisely defined in the exploration of space. It used to be a synonym for asteroid and referred at the same time to its star-like and planet-like image. As larger planetary objects planetoids became secondary bodies of the Solar System. They are travelling around and glimmering above us. They are showing constantly the glint of universe. DIOPTRICE light installation's site-specific concept based on rediscovering the shape of Kimmo Schroderus: Hyöky sculpture. The optical illusions and the laser choreography based on the studies of light refractions.
