    Our Sun is a second- or third-generation star. All of the rocky and metallic material we stand on, the iron in our blood, the calcium in our teeth, the carbon in our genes were produced billions of years ago in the interior of a red giant star. We are made of star-stuff.’

    ― Carl Sagan, 1973 ‘The Cosmic Connection: An Extraterrestrial Perspective’

    WE ARE MADE OF STARSTUFF is an ongoing figure and landscape exploration with costume, performance and motion capture. A series of films were created which use in camera effects and costumes to create an uneasy relation between figure and background.
