Ink on cardstock

This piece is made of thousands of pieces of paper. On each is written “Hello. We are here. Where are you?” It is like a slice of the night's sky, looking into the distance wondering who is out there calling to us on Earth. Like the night sky, the piece never quite comes into focus as the curled black pieces of paper seem to change color and texture as the viewer moves around. The text too from a distance seems like metallic sheen, only when the viewer comes very close do the words appear.
