Text on door poster:
Lavendra is a brown dwarf. Like planets, brown dwarfs lack the mass to ignite and produce starlight. Like stars, they are often found alone in space. The installation you are entering takes place on its surface. Mhysa is saving the brown dwarf by bringing the magic of the Black diva to it. With the help of Mhysa, the Black diva’s voice acts as an audio technology that both stabilizes the surface for humans and helps the brown dwarf become more of a planet, though still alone without a parent body to orbit.
