Souvenir reminders of an incredible day! I recently returned to Houston the end of July and had the unique opportunity to meet with Dr. Kamlesh Lulla and learn about his various roles throughout his 30+ year career. As NASA’s Chief Scientist for Earth Observation, Space Shuttle and International Space Station programs, he developed and directed the technologies that enable NASA’s satellites and shuttles to capture Earth’s imagery and data from space! It was a true honor to share my recent art project in Houston with him and discuss our overlapping interests between science, art and conservation. The word “inspiring” is a bit of an understatement when I think of the extraordinary commitments he’s made to science, research, and space exploration. Suffice it to say, I’m intensely motivated and already back in the studio studying and researching to my heart’s content… and my head? …Yes, that’s still up in the clouds!

Comprised using 500ft of spun hair, hundreds of small mirrors and tethered to six futuristic fossilized concrete sculptures, the walk-in installation explores unease, intrigue and fragility between humanness, technology and ecology as it envelopes the 15ft x 17ft enclosed room. Details and images here.
