Life on earth began in a swirling cloud of stardust. Approximately Infinite Universe considers the multiple meanings found in imaginative and traditional mappings of time, life and death. Naminapu paints the night sky and light that has been travelling for thousands, sometimes millions of years across space and time; she studies the Milky Way as a three-dimensional forest or rivers of galaxies. Her sister Galama Maymuru contemplates death here on earth. Both are part of the same complex mortuary and belief system that is “everywhen”. (W.E.H Stanner, 'The Dreaming', 1953).
