When asked to show my work at Ro I started my thinking with the idea of home and space so that the work fit the environment it was being shown. While this was happening NPR ran a story about the birthday of the Hubble Telescope and suggested viewing the images at their website. The images were stunning and the idea of space and our home within it immediately came to mind. My initial thoughts focused on the micro version of home and space, where you lay your head at night, but the macro version of our place and home in the greater universe made just as much sense. All pieces are directly influenced by images from the Hubble Telescope with the idea of when the images are displayed in your home they will remind you of your place in the greater universe.
