Astronomical Bodies

Astronomical Bodies is based on the research of Dr. Terence Kee of the University of Leeds. He proposes that that a reactive form of phosphorus arrived on the early Earth via meteorite impacts. His research found that phosphorus from space was more suitable for the chemical reactions to develop complex life. Astronomical Bodies reverses this process and tries to transform phosphorus harvested from the body — in the form of kidney stones and urine — into manmade meteorites. Rather than the traditional idea of transpermia addressed in a host of science fiction writings and films, Astronomical Bodies proposes that the galactic transferal of life-promoting chemicals is a natural process that we can facilitate.

On October 9th, 1992, a meteorite broke up over the United States and hit a parked car in Peekskill, New York. Since then that car is known as the Peekskill Meteorite Car and was exhibited all over the world. Ron van der Ende, a Dutch artist, took that car as the inspiration for his bas relief made with reclaimed timber.
