About the Item: We Are All Exploding Stars uses constellation imagery to underscore two stories about the beginnings of life on earth. One is Carl Sagan’s scientific explanation of the origins of life: “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” The second story is Native American botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer’s tribal story of the origins of life and abundance on our planet—“Skywoman ” falling to earth and joyfully working together with all creatures to plant a world of beauty and abundance for all to share. We Are All Exploding Stars is from the Seeds of Change series of 35 works that suggest that, if we listen, science can lead us away from environmental devastation and climate change. The ideas for preserving our fragile planet are described as “seeds of change”—ideas that can be “planted” and can grow into a better future.
