my entry to The infinity and beyond exhibition
"Earth has something random, fickle about it – here a tree, there a wall or garden, over the horizon another horizon, beyond the mountain a valley ... but not out there. People on Earth can’t imagine what a pain the stars are – what a drag it is to cruise the cosmos, even for a year at full thrust, with never a change of scenery! We fly, sail around the world, and think: So that’s what outer space is like! But there’s just no comparison."
Stanisław Lem, Tales of Pirx Pilot
