e.g. A Ticket to Another Planet, 2011

 

Throughout human history our understanding of outer space, of the heavens, has been fraught with complex philosophical speculations and contradictions. From its earliest civilizations, man has peopled this unknowably vast expanse with deities of many kinds and these gods or idols have been a driving force behind the creation of myths and religions worldwide, reflecting our existential anxieties in relation to this bewildering infinity. A possible visit by extra-terrestrial beings has similarly been a cornerstone of human culture. While this solid, shiny Super Egg bears no markings, it is believed that just such a gravity-defying egg was deposited with a shaman following a visitation from outer-space and remains both as a token of that initial contact and as ‘a ticket to another planet’.
