Sun Ra was an American musician, composer, and poet who affirmed his extraterrestrial origin. On May 16, 2009 The Sun Ra Repatriation Project sent a composite portrait of Sun Ra into deep space.

The installation acts as an observation centre in which one awaits a cosmic sign from Sun Ra. The sounds heard in the installation are a mix of three VLF (very low frequency) sources obtained from space in realtime.

A dot matrix printer continuously records the incoming signals while a video in an adjoining room relates the project’s previous activities.
