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...

Ferro fluid // Photo Reference Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The universe is defined by balancing and opposing forces. Chaos and cosmos; order and disorder, reality and illusion. This cosmic cabinet of curiosities creates a wireless communication between concepts related to electromagnetism, celestial cartography, nuclear radiation and stellar spectroscopy. An integration of static and dynamic fields; that augment the process of exploration through science. The project has been inspired by books from the Library's astronomy collection, such as Observational Astronomy (D. Birney 1926), the Cambridge Star Atlas (Will Tirion, 2011) and Measuring the Universe (Kitty Ferguson, 2000),...

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. Albert Einstein (1879-1955)” Overall my work explores interconnectedness and the open-ended dialogue between art and science, by combining scientific concepts, laws and theories from different disciplines with an arts practice. Using free association to discover the mirroring of scientific theory and concept with social, formal and physical sciences; including mathematics, architecture,...

For my final blog this month i wanted to show my latest artist impression. I created this artist impression for Franck Marchis (SETI Institute) together with Daniel Jontof-Hutter and Jason Rowe (NASA Ames Research Centre). This illustration depicts the solar system Kepler 138. The significance of this discovery is that exoplanet Kepler 138b is quite small compared to most exoplanets; it has about the same size and mass as Mars. The gravity of Kepler 138's three planets pull them into a slightly different position than they would have been if they had not been influenced by each other. This enabled...

Astronomers Without Borders' AstroCrafts web blog presented by Kathleen Horner will share a unique variety of creative, educational and fun astronomy-related crafts inspired by the cosmos in which we live. The AstroCrafts page projects will be presented periodically throughout the year for the whole family that involves hands on arts and crafts that will teach us about the wonders of our universe.  The projects are especially a great resource for schools and other organizations, too.  The AstroCrafts projects is another way we can discover our own inner artist and find personal expression of what we see and feel in the cosmic life that is all around us.
