The Overview

Artist Statement

This series’ theme focuses on ideas surrounding the Overview Effect and first hand accounts described by astronauts seeing our fragile earth from space. Experiencing with one’s own eyes that this celestial body is a single ecosystem profoundly impacts one’s sense of care and connectedness to the planet. Our physical location cannot help but inform our scope of the universe. Leaving earth to explore beyond writes a new chapter in our evolutionary tale that may also become part of our origin story. Traversing the heavens, a place previously reserved for imagination and the afterlife, is impacting humanity in ways we are still trying to grasp, especially now as we cruise further and further from home.
