    About the work:
    The night sky is one of the oldest existential quandaries, and some of the oldest known artworks are reimagionations of constellations. When we look at the stars, we wonder how we got here, why we got here, and how long we’ll be here. It is safe to say that throughout the entire run of our species, we will never know the answers to these questions. However, we do control the answer to another pressing existential question: what will we do with our time while we are alive? Moderately Notable Area encourages one to look to the stars and one’s neighbors, and realize that the only way to live in a better world requires one to imagine something seemingly impossible and commit to its creation. Whether it be recreating an image of the universe out of abstract shapes or lobbying to change one’s city’s archaic zoning laws, the future is in the hands of all those alive right now. Believe in radical hope!
