NIEMAN ADAM, Welcome to the Neighbourhood: Belonging to the Universe, Leonardo, Vol.38, n°5, pp.383-388, 2005

Space travel could be an experience available to every one. This paper describes Welcome to the Neighbourhood, a combination of sculpture and multimedia designed to help people inhabit the solar system (without leaving the earth). The project aims to empower astronomers and non astronomers alike to form an authentic conception of their place in the cosmos. The author discusses the sculptures that inspired the idea for the project, including the largest known kinetic sculpture ever built (60 light-year across), and then outlines Welcome to the Neighbourhood in the context of a broader discussion of public engagement with science and the role of space art in transforming people's experience of "being in the universe".
