We will meditate and throw energy to Russia, Europe and Beyond with the Chelyabinsk meteorite - as it falls apart, we send the dust particles down to Earth with our collective intent to stay centered.

 


 This meditation is created by the artist specifically for CYFEST-13 and will focus on the Chelyabinsk meteor that fell in 2013. Audiences are guided to follow the breakup of the meteor and stay centered as all falls apart, and the star dust is mixed up with various anthropogenic dust. Before the meditation, there will be a talk about the project followed by Q&A after the collective gathering of minds.

 


[Alien] refers to looking up into outer space for star dust but then turning our gaze back down to earth extending the idea that everything is interconnected, flowing, flying and mixing around our planet and beyond. In all the pollution, we lose sight of the star dust...

From Africa, Saharan sand dust falling on the Alps to the ash from fires in Australia landing in Europe – this dust is the earthly alien dust that mixes with the space dust. 

Star Dust is 1/10th of the width of a human hair and 70-100 tons of this extra-terrestrial falls on earth every single day and these invisible grains hold the mystery of our cosmic roots. 

All the molecules in our bodies originate with that residual stardust that finds its way into plants, and from there into the nutrients we need to survive.  Analyses of the organic matter in meteorites can provide insights into the types of chemical reactions and organic compounds providing insights into the history of our planetary system and origins of life on Planet Earth.
