‘Our Space in Space’ is a representation of the classic image of Earth taken by Voyager 1 on 14th February 1990 from more than 4 billion miles away. Known as the Pale Blue Dot, the photograph was used in Carl Sagan’s book of the same name to beautifully and humbly given perspective to all human life and our planet’s place within the universe. To me this is the ultimate illustration that our own cherished small spaces are connected to the wider universe, and the perspective that brings; with everything on Earth, and all natural and human history, encompassed in that one tiny dot.
