Our Humanity is an examination of the human body relative to space. Through the act of “inploration,” a journey into the body and “exploration,” a journey out to space, common patterns emerge showing our own links to the Universe.  This series compares the atom to a solar system, cells to planets, and electrons to stars to show endless layers of external and internal discovery.

Our curiosity to explore beyond our planet sets us apart from other earthlings. The small print (below) features a crowd of people working together to construct a DNA strand. Our DNA and our ability to work together is our ladder to the stars. This print, Our Humanity, traveled to outer space and back aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard space system, flight time 618.6 seconds.
