This piece was made in lieu of the current Covid-19 pandemic. When stay-at-home orders were implemented, I imagined all of us as individual, isolated, peaceful satellites; A steady stream of digital communication tethering us to friends and family while our eyes watch the entire world. The satellite's cameras are facing away from the aluminum base which represents earth. On the base, I've used a center-punch to apply a small, unsightly gouge on the surface representing the mark the Covid-19 virus is leaving on our planet.
