We are Star Dust
Billion Old Carbon
We are Golden Caught in the Devil’s bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the Garden
-Joni Mitchell, 1969
[Alien] Star Dust premiered on March 10, 2020, at the Natural History Museum in Vienna as a site-specific immersive art experience, the day before the city and all of Europe and most of the world closed down due to the COVID 19 virus. This version was created in quarantine and meant for all to experience as a way inside and guide us out of our bodies and escape into the vast space of our minds. Premiering with the support of Harvestworks, this work is meant to be experienced as a guided meditation bringing to life the sensations of meteorites and micro-meteorites falling on all continents and mixing with the anthropogenic dust falling on our planet from many dimensions. Layers of sounds from inner and outer space with animations of dust and data driven by corona deaths are presented with the intent of honoring those who left their bodies without preparation and all who are suffering.
This online version was created as a meditation that is guided by the artist following the extra-terrestrial, terrestrial, and human-made dusts traveling far and wide and creating complexity that is part of an invisible reality. Most go about their daily life without being aware of ever thinking about the extraterrestrial dusts that could be on their kitchen floor, right here on earth. The alien signal is lost in the human noise and the group meditation reclaims our vision of planetary citizenship.
