In You Are Here, Schaechter creates and locates the image of a nude woman—with the grass-covered earth below and the starry, celestial sphere above—at the center of her own universe.

For decades, Schaechter has taught classes and workshops around the world. While teaching at the Northland School of Glass in Scotland, Schaechter visited a wind farm where she and others lay down beneath the windmills and night sky. While contemplating the vastness of the universe, Schaechter thought of a class she took at Rhode Island School of Design many years earlier taught by her most influential teacher, Dirk Bach. He described art as a tool to help an individual identify as a microcosm within the macrocosm of the universe. The artist, at a turning point in her personal life, depicted a serene, promising scene of awakening or rebirth.
