I am proud that Slovenia’s achievements have been recognized, giving inspiration to all those who might believe that space venture and exploration is only reserved for large countries. If anywhere it is within the context of space exploration and our Collective wish to protect our planet, that we all need to come together as one species, as humane beings and join forces as have expressed so well the various astronauts and Carl Sagan whose statements of looking down at our beautiful and fragile Earth I have intertwined into my immersive video performance.
