Stella lives in us

Where is here? Who are we?

The answers seems to be never minded while we live everyday.

It’s 5:45am. Today’s Sun is not ready yet. Weak rain’s just stopped and Sky is pale grayish blue. Wet asphalt is colorfully tinted by headlights for morning commuters.

Is city’s light too bright? We could not see thousands of stars upon our heads. Also we are too busy to remember that we stand on a star in the cosmos.

Few days ago, I happened to see an instagram posting on Carl Sagan’s COSMOS. And it makes me try to answer upon questions. Here is cosmos and we’re made of the same materials of stars. We are star, we are nature. Is there anyone to say no?

“Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” | during a short trip to Yangyang

Here are some quotes I love.

  • We are all stardust.
  • The cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be.
  • We are just butterflies who flutter for a one day and think it is forever.
  • The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.

Let’s name us, Stella

Same name for us all!

Here are some works for our aw19 from the idea above. We are star, we are nature. Stella lives in us.

Where are you? and what do you think? We’d love to hear from you, Stella.
