Over 9,000 fake diamonds of different diameters are embedded into the doors of a 1950s nut wood wardrobe. The diamonds create the image of the Milky Way galaxy as seen from a distant point looking in toward Earth. The mundane and domestic is elevated by a cosmic representation. The title originates from the astronomical writings of Carl Sagan, referencing both the insignificance and importance of human life on Earth.
