‘luna was here’ is part of the series ‘Chaosmos’, which makes use of real gold leaf as its core material.
“It turns out that when we look far into outer space, essentially back through time some 130 million years ago, we can see that all the gold in the known universe was created and spewed out in cosmically violent neutron star collisions and that includes also the atoms of gold that can be found in the human brain. For inside every neuron, there are just a few atoms of gold that keep the neuron charged, which is what keeps us thinking, moving and existing.” Michelle Thaller, astrophysicist
So this series ‘Chaosmos’ explores the correaltion between the micro and the macro cosmos, and it’s tight interconnections transcending life and death and challenging the limits of our imagination imprisoned in our perception of space and time.
