[Alien] Star Dust: Signal to Noise
Natural History Museum, Vienna
“Walking through the empty Natural History Museum in Vienna, the day after the opening”
Every creature contains hydrogen atoms and every material element is manufactured in stars through their fusion. We are created from stardust by nuclear fusion, like our myriad siblings – animals, plants, insects, plankton, bacteria and viruses, and we all function together in vibratory fields – bottom up just as nature and nanotechnology works.
[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.
[Alien] Star Dust 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.
AFRICA: Morocco, Tissint; EUROPE: Russia, Chelabynsk; CHINA: Fukang; AUSTRALIA: Henbury; North America USA: Canyon Diablo; South America, Argentina: Campo del Cielo; ANTARTICA: Alan Hills.
These meteorites serve as background or imaginary source for the four micrometeorites enlarged and 3D printed, levitating in their cabinets.
