On the 14th February, 1990, Voyager 1 space probe was turned back on itself as it passed Saturn to take a series of photos, the day’s Family Portraits of our solar system. One of these images became the iconic photograph Pale Blue Dot, showing Earth, no bigger than a blue pixel in a ray of sunlight at a record 6 billion kilometres away.
Inspired by this photo, little blue dot takes young explorers of 0-3 years old and those accompanying them on an interactive, intimate journey: a tour through the universe. Playful atoms colliding, stars spinning past, to the kaleidoscope of our universe…and us. Take a look around, peek at a particle to what we perceive as big, Planet Earth, to bigger than that, the Cosmos.
little blue dot is about space, and how we fit into it.
Using all manner of balls, spheres and circles, a pocket planetarium is created, immersing the audience, to prove that size is, afterall, a matter of perspective.
