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. As a final component to this series, I was commissioned to create a small artwork to send to outer space aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard space system, flight time 618.6 seconds.
