Space Rider. Exploring the universe. An ever-present yet unattainable dream. What began as pure music found its meaning in an emerging awareness of objects strewn throughout deep space. Using the Stellina telescope by Vaonis, deep space images became almost instantly attainable. Nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters were all just a few imaging sessions away. During the pandemic, the universe around GoldFlēce increased in size by millions of light-years. A childhood toy of the space shuttle in 2001: A Space Odyssey is used in “Space Rider” to pay homage to Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick.
