Debashish Chakrabarty

STARDUST (2014-present)

Ever since the dawn of human consciousness, man has examined his environment and asked questions. We have all looked up in the same way, seen the same stars and have asked the same question: where are we? Set against the scale of the universe, the earth is no more than a little bit of fluff. The iron in our blood, the calcium in our bones – we have the big bang to thank for it, they are the remnants of stars. Are we then the cosmos that contemplates itself as we ponder the immensity of the universe? With STARDUST, Debashish Chakrabarty offers a fictitious look at those who wonder at light and space, who are unhindered by earthly concerns of time and distance.
