As a child, growing up watching Carl Sagan's Cosmos TV series, I have always been mesmerized by images from space. After spending a lifetime devouring books with images of the rings of Saturn, the painterly storms on Jupiter and the explosions of colors from the Orion nebula, I have always wondered what would it be like to be a space traveler, seeing these celestial shows up and close. Seeing the chaos and beauty of cosmic dusts and gases, dancing so elegantly through the millennia, yet standing still in the present. These wonders and thought experiments brought me to imagine and create these pieces.
