I sometimes find that I've tied myself in knots trying to justify the rationale behind the filling in of a few holes in my own paintings. I had just wondered if there was a particular line of research behind the placement of your hardware.
A few years ago I'd asked another artist why he'd designed his martian life support suits the way he had and I got back an amazing essay with links to all sorts of websites and articles that I still use to this day. It's always worth asking the question "why" sometimes.
Thanks! Actually, the website isn't quite "ready for prime time" yet - but at least it finally exists! I've started to use the URL - here and a few other places, and the fact that people are seeing it now lights a fire under me to get it closer to a finished state!
Thanks. Having been accused of having an affliction on the IAAA list, I wonder if it's because I'm gone InSANe. Must admit that I'd not been following the InSANe matters too closely, but thought I'd better not miss out on astronomical art discussion and new works. Thus far I've avoided the social networks.
I hope I can change the picture, as the cropping in Gimp went a little
further than I thought. The full image was taken by Aldo at the Death
Valley Workshop in 2005.
thanks for your comments Sean, I'm interested in the metaphysical effects of technology on the human race, as was the late great JG Ballard, but have developed a keen interest in Mars exploration. Maybe as a counter to our earthly failings.
