Goodbye Cassini

  • On September 15, 2017 the Cassini spacecraft plunged into Saturn's atmosphere, ending over a 20 years of groundbreaking space science. This project was created in the spacecraft's final weeks before its fatal termination. This work was exhibited alongside a group of New York artists at the "Goodbye Cassini" show at Con Artist Collective. The works shown here show the sketchbook process, two works on paper, and the larger final piece to promote the immense scale of this mission. 

    This project is dedicated to the incredible collaboration between both NASA and the European Space Agency and their continued successes exploring the cosmos.

    Thank you to Con Artist Collective for all the support as well as media coverage from NHK News ( NHKのニュースサイト)
