It incorporates Beer's two longterm views of the night sky. Firstly from New Zealand where Beer lived until the age of 16 and secondly from London where she lived for 16 years. The first image is from the Mackenzie Country in New Zealand, and the second image was taken in Elephant and Castle, in London.
