I ended up making planets out of wood, hand turned on a wood lathe. They are suspended from the ceiling on a mobile and driven by a single motor. This single motor creates very unpredictable paths for the planets, governed by chance.
In the installation I incorporated a photograph of an astronaut that I've had since 1996.
