One has to listen to the immensely remote in order to better perceive the infinitely close.
The telescopic arms of the apparatus stretch towards the sky, lifting the dishes up to their listening position. The receiving surface of the antennae is lit by a nacre glow and at their centre a bright strobe signals their activity. They seem to pick up the sound of the stars, which they then broadcast back down to Earth, from a sound system featured at their extremity.
When, finally fulfilled in their quest for celestial elation, they decide to look down towards the Earth, the telescopic arms withdraw, the dishes bow down towards the vide-projectors’ axis, and the audience, standing up within the elliptic setting thus created, become receivers.
