In June 2016, Brenton Good visited the Italian town of Assisi, known as the birth place of St. Francis, and set in the undulating hills of Umbria.

According to the artist: “These hovering forms and overlapping colors found in nature relate directly to other abstract works being created simultaneously.

Although an abstract sculpture, the installation is also a scientifically precise representation of the chemical composition of moon dust as it was gathered during the Apollo 17 mission.
