Cradle - Island Universe

Cradle - Island Universe

Black & White Project Space, New York, 2010-2011


Ancient Greeks called the Milky Way the "galaxias kuklos," or "milky circle" for its appearance in the sky. Greek myth describes the origin of the Milky Way as the goddess Hera is spilling her breast milk across the heavens to form a milky circle. In fact, the word "galaxy" comes from the Greek word for the Milky Way, which is derived from the words for motherユs milk (gala) and circle (kuklos).

The milky-circle bead sculpture is hanging in the air to embrace the universe as birthplace - nest - cocoon of the universe.
