Program Notes

In 2014, scientists redefined the Milky Way’s place in the universe by determining that our galaxy is located within a massive supercluster made up of over 100,000 nearby galaxies. The team from The University of Hawaii also produced a map in which the Milky Way is rendered as a tiny dot near the center of a spiderweb of star systems. They named this structure Laniakea, Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven.”

I stared at this picture for a long time. I imagined being able to truly see every aspect of this structure from a zoomed-out perspective, floating in a space suit. This piece is meant to portray the emotions that might accompany such an experience.
