About the project

"The artwork on the box is an abstract representation of deep space. There are also small holes drilled all over the box to represent the light of stars that we are able to see. Future space exploration is going to consist of traveling deeper and learning more about the abstract universe that is out there. Although the artwork is fictional and representative of something we may see, the small stars of light are how we see it right now. One day we will be able to appreciate how one dot of light in the sky is an entire solar system with its own planets and worlds."
