Titan, eclipse, William Blake, No. 4 - Limited Edition 1 of 1
New Media: Graphite, Algorithmic Art, Photo, C-type, Silverpoint on Paper.
The work is inspired by a photograph of Saturn's moon Titan, taken by the Cassini Satellite. I take the raw image and overlay it with red dots representing biometric data - in this case my heartbeat, measured at the time the Satellite took the picture.
The visualisation is inspired by William Blake's poem:
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour"
So it's a collage in terms of time - and materials (A giclee print of a digitally generated image), hand-finished with graphite, silverleaf and enamel paint.
