I wanted to give the planets little personalities of their own, whilst having fun with the notion of gravity. I used a selection of vintage and existing fabrics, and accessorised the planets using crochet, trims and tassels. It is housed within a handmade diorama lined with inky corduroy that has been decorated with tiny felt stars and French knots.
'A dwarf planet, that's what Pluto is', quipped my 6yo. OMG so the mnemonic 'My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets is no longer valid!' That messy space is typically a scene at home when we are searching for something. We come across everything else than what we were searching for. Lol!
Each person will have an especially designed space suit, to which a pet carrier can be attached, if desired.
Your journey can be as long or as short as you wish, because Oxygen is unlimited. This is due to an innovative, built-in, technology in the suit, known as: Infinity Air ! :)
This is my 10 year old daughters map of our Solar System. During this year's lock down she taught herself Procreate (and a bunch of animation apps) She honestly did this all by herself only asking for technical advice. I couldn't be a prouder mama knowing she enjoys her creative time as much as me.
This submission for the Out of This World challenge is inspired by mathematician Katherine Johnson, whose story was featured in the movie, Hidden Figures. I imagine Katherine writing her calculations on the blackboard and at the same time drawing a path on the night sky that would guide the astronauts and bring them safely back to earth.
This map is based on a classic work of science fiction by Ursula K. LeGuin. The book is a philosophical and political discussion of anarchy (within a collective frame) vs. capitalism, as anarchists leave their home world of Urras to set up a practical utopia on its moon, Anarres. Two hundred years later, a physicist challenges both lifestyles in his quest to work freely.
This is mixed media, with collage, gesso, Daler Rowney inks, watercolors, gel pens, Uniball pen, and pencil, on watercolor paper. I worked at the actual size, which presented some challenges, and didn't remember the rule to leave the 1.25-inch center empty of text. Oh well...a spontaneous exercise that took me two days instead of the usual week of work, so it's all good.
