This artwork is of a UFO (either landing or launching) in a forest clearing. It represents a playful meeting of pop culture, nature and technology. It refers to Hobart as a bright satellite, an artificial body located in the midst of nature. It acknowledges its proximity to the local gaming business: Area 52 and the top-secret military base in Utah where UFO activity was reported.
