Abstract

Dust to Dust is a Creative Nonfiction piece inspired by dust bunnies. Dust, the often forgotten element of life, coats and clings to every surface in our natural lives. The process of researching the infinitesimal stuff of stars involved a great deal of reading and dust hunting. The archives of the internet and Hannah Holmes' The Secret Life of Dust led me down digital dust trails and fed my research. The creation of the piece, however, demanded a more intimate touch, a little life amongst the motes; hence, the interspersion of personal narration. From the cosmos to the cracked corners of the room, dust is all around us.
