A handful of dust

»I just noticed […]: that, first and foremost, the heavens were an inquiry into man. Indeed, man is an inwards universe.« Arnold Stadler on Florian Schwarz Knowledge of the universe is growing, but human existence is increasingly being called into question. This paradox is the leitmotiv of A handful of dust, a photographic research project by Florian Schwarz. Over a period of four years, he traveled to observatories in the most remote places in the world. He insightfully links the distant view into the expanse of space with close-up views of the people who live in the surroundings of these institutes. He covers a spectrum from the dusty, bleak ends of this world to the center of the universe, where our center is also situated—since we, as the most recent research has shown, consist of up to 97% stardust.
