a slice of heaven

In the dust

A Slice of Heaven transforms a familiar section of our local stellar neighborhood into a curious streetscape, shrinking 486 light-years of space down to 40 feet of walkable, lamp-lit passage. The collections of stars that we know as the Big and Little Dipper are uniquely visible in our tiny sliver of the universe - seen from any other perspective, they take on totally different shapes. By observing the stars from alternative positions, we are invited to think about our place in the universe and how the familiar night sky hides a depth we do not often contemplate.
