So Far, So Close was an attempt to create a visual piece that felt both astronomical and microscopic. While you are watching, imagine yourself to be an observer, not necessarily looking for a beginning and an end, but simply looking through a telescope (or a microscope!) on a distant world yet to be discovered.
