Along with a reproduction of a 19th century celestial planisphere, this body of work comprises twelve images depicting constellations of moles on the skin of twelve different people. Each corner of a dimmed room features three small prints hung up high to be explored through a pair of binoculars. Disregarding the scientific approach to terrestrial and astronomical documentation through the inclusion of Earth and celestial coordinates, the installation seeks to establish an emotive appreciation of the reciprocal way constellations of moles on the skin and stars in the night sky mirror one another. A poetic interplay between the biggest and furthest objects and the comparatively minuscule human body alludes to the idea of a mutual history and ultimately, universal belonging.
