"When modern urban life brought light into the night, starry skies were moved to the planetarium. Planetarium is a science fiction comedy concerned with the cosmos that surrounds us and the universe that exists inside our heads. It is also a whimsical post-fin de siècle ode to the death of utopia as embodied by the American space exploration program of the 1960s. Planetarium explores current cultural obsessions with ufology, extra-terrestrials, technology and outer space. Henricks contemplates the infinite, ever-expanding darkness with tiny flashlights, glow-in-the-dark astronauts, spirals, eyeballs, disco balls and spinning tops." —YYZ Artists' Outlet, (Toronto, 2001)
