The Galactic Visions of Michael C. Turner “Galactic Runes” ©1994/2015 Michael C. Turner ~ Galactic Visions Space Art For my third post I am sharing more of my Galactic Visions Space Art paintings along with my thoughts about the art and scientific phenomena. Most of these images come from my late early years and “middle years” of the 1980s and 1990s. These are the years that truly established the foundation of my space art and brought a deeper focus on the philosophical as well as the artistic imagery that has become my artist icon. I have always sought to create...

The Galactic Visions Of Michael C. Turner In my fist post I shared that my space art spans six decades. Actually the inspiration behind my art spans seven decades since I was born in 1952. My earliest recollections are of gazing at the starry sky and wondering just what those gently twinkling orbs of light actually were. I would imagine flying there on my own power, an early influence of the iconic Adventures of Superman starring George Reeves as the "strange visitor from another planet." Obviously this was an Earth-like planet, a kind of "Super-Earth!" During those early impressionable years...

THE GALACTIC VISIONS OF MICHAEL C. TURNER ☆For my first blog post I would like to share a bit of my background with this article I wrote for the webzine "Amazing Stories" which is essentially my artist's bio.

Turner transports viewers into a fabulously mysterious universe filled with light and color. His canvases are filled with extrasolar worlds, galaxies of stars, brilliantly glowing nebulae, pulsars, quasars, black holes, and other bizarre cosmic phenomena. At first, one might consider these images...

The Violent Eclipse of the Electric Moon (Part I) At the edge of the cosmic universe Moons fight with galaxies. Asteroids determine the magnitude of the soul Emotions force the death of density A war of forbidden lines. Violent eruptions and radiating electric clashes The spark of chaos clashes with the unknown Sharp chronometers land on the moon Is this the centre of gravity? Or the absolute eccentricity? (Part II) Sky dancers radiate A magnetic energy Flies freely among electric galaxies Meteors and comets unite The revolution of the universe Unconditional darkness Time disappears in the sky The destruction of...

Random Order is a collective of four artists whose practices expand from sculpture, film and performance into new technologies with immersive environments. Sound plays a role in our individual practices but becomes the primary medium in our collective. Random Order's projects seek to understand how sound affects the human perception of the spaces we interact with and its impact on our everyday lives. We interrogate sound's potential to relate to the environment and open up both universal and individual stories and histories. Through exploring the acoustics of sound we deal with its physical properties, further implicating a direct engagement with...
