[Alien] Star Dust premiered March 10, 2020 at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, the day before the entire city closed down due to COVID 19.
The installation draws from the museum’s collection of meteorites that landed across all continents, selected in close dialogue with the museum director, geologist Christian Koeberl and meteorite curator Ludovic Ferrière.
These meteorites serve as background or imaginary source for the four micrometeorites enlarged and 3D printed, levitating in their cabinets.
Seven different meteorites from seven different continents were part of the installation. Click on a meteorite to learn more about its history.
