We Float Like Dust
In the offset book We Float Like Dust, I explore how earth’s physical placement within the cosmos has changed throughout time through envisioning the various historic models of the universe. Each solar system was designed according to popular perceptions of the universe at that time. For centuries, our field of vision could not extend beyond what was visible to the eye and as a result, we were the center of a narrowly known universe. When astronomer Copernicus made drastic discoveries about the rotations of the sun, earth, and our surrounding neighbors, perceptions about the center were shattered and earth was no longer significant. As we continue to make advancements in space exploration, we learn we are merely a speck of dust, suspended amongst innumerable specks.
