Cutout, hand-painted paper lines the ballet entrance to the nebula surrounding a pink and blue Neptune. Cotton candy globes float idly by, never picking up their pace. When I blink, it looks like all the pastel orbs are frozen in space as when you blink at a slow spinning fan. Here, we reside in a world of lunar light blue, pastry pink and pale purple or hover above for an aerial view of after a young girl’s birthday party. Speckled neon candles and mirrors hang over the frosted cosmic forest that prophesizes what’s to come by looking through translucent erasers and found sequins.
