This room is a recreation of a set made for Skawennati's machinima, She Falls for Ages. Originally produced in Second Life, the story is a sci-fi retelling of the Haudenosaunee Creation Story. The ancient tale begins in a place "beyond the heavens", often called Skyworld, where there is a special tree, known as the Celestial
Skawennati's Celestial Tree grows on a field of white hexagons. A pink sky casts cotton-candy colored light on everything.
The Celestial Tree stands in the middle. It is white, with twisting roots that grow into the floor. Its branches reach towards the sky in angular, upward shapes. At the node of each branch, a different colored blossom grow--they are yellow, red, pink, green, blue, and white. Around the perimeter of the Celestial Tree, futuristic, S-shaped benches are arranged in a loose square pattern. In between each bench, there is a gray and black canister. The canisters appear to be made out of glass, with black discs at top and bottom. Inside each canister, a differently-colored blossom rotates slowly in a circle.
