“We’re going farther and farther away from the sun”

What do we encounter at the end of a journey? Do we accept peace and a slightly altered existence? Do we settle into profound truths that we have uncovered while pressing new footprints in our dance around the sun? Do we openly receive transcendence? And who do we kiss when we cross over the final threshold?

Featuring artists Matt Brownell, Bobby Davidson, Leah DeVun, Robin Kang, Dylan Neuwirth, and Esther Ruiz, Rosetta is inspired by these questions of humanity, under the assumption that one of the primary motivations of existence is the continuous need to push ourselves beyond what we know – to be our own prodigal son. The intrinsic compulsion to set off and unearth treasures, either geographically or metaphysically, is a primal aspect of our nature. We now live in an era of space travel; wandering out into the reaches of the cosmos conjures the inspiration mystics conceive when divining their souls. Our spacecraft, Rosetta, ends her lifespan with one last descent to the comet she accompanied for decades – an absolute merging with her galactic soul mate, into the eons-old dust that once formed everything. In presenting Rosetta, we hope the viewer enters the space with a sense of curiosity, connecting with the light, and ultimately recognizing we are all C-Beams glittering in the dark.
