Debris from outer space drifts constantly into Earth’s atmosphere. Upon entering, these objects burn into molten metal. Larger pieces become meteorites, but many are the size of a grain of sand. These tiny pieces of space dust, or micrometeorites, rain constantly down on earth, unnoticed. I am currently engaged in a project to collect these tiny artifacts that occupy a fascinating space of specialness and insignificance due to their size and origin.
