Maija Tammi drew inspiration for the series "Milky Way" from two premises: the first, panspermia, the scientific theory that "seeds of life" are distributed by asteroids, comets and meteoroids throughout the Universe, and that life on earth began this way; second, the belief of the Sambia people in Papua New Guinea that humans are containers through which life and sexuality flow. Masculinity and femininity are believed to be determined by the excretion of semen (male milk) and breast milk (female milk). Combining these two concepts, Tammi used semen and breast milk as a medium, creating and photographing cosmic landscapes on a living room table.
