A wall drawing that is a horizontal tracing of my outstretched arm. Though it has a resemblance to the outlines of hands found in Lascaux and other caves, this image of my hand exists in a time where we have a different understanding of our place in the universe. The moon is so far away, yet is the closest celestial body to Earth. How different do we feel from those who lived before us, now that we know the universe is infinite and expanding?
