Exploration, 2017

My collaboration with NASA Goddard launched March 2nd at NASA Goddard. The piece includes a replica of the James Webb Space Telescope's golden hexagonal mirror. The arms of the scientists (and the artist) are reaching out of the dish to the far corners of space wrapped in metrics and formulas that helped build the telescope.

The piece is 3D printed and gold plated using NASA developed laser gold
