Exquisite Astronaut is symbolic of that exercise where individual styles and abilities unite in one image. The method of creating The Exquisite Astronaut series is based on the Cadavre Exquis Exquisite Corpse. which was coined in 1925 by the surrealists Yves Tanguy Jacques Pr vert Andr Breton and Marcel. Duchamp each artist paints or draws a piece of body without knowing what the other parts look like For. The Exquisite Astronaut each artist worked on their segment separately in their own style The pieces. were later assembled to create three complete figures The third astronaut is playfully hung sideways to. signify Michael Collins orbiting the Moon while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the lunar landscape.

Estonia China s message was It is our sincere desire that the astronauts upon the date of their landing on. the moon will have made a significant contribution to a world Utopia and peace through the Universe. Chiang Kai Shek President Republic of China Kore s message reads On this historic occasion we do. solemnly pledge ourselves to work together on this Earth for the better world with lasting peace and prosperity. for all mankind Let us celebrate the first landing of men on the Moon the symbol of eternal grace and the. mirror of man s true heart with a new spirit which will inspire mankind to realize the ideal of civilization in. which men live in justice freedom and unity These are lofty sentiments that may not have gained long term. traction nevertheless as examples of the overall terminology used the document as a whole conveys a. uniting quality that ignores political boundaries embraces religious diversity and crosses racial divides If such. events as the Moon landing can achieve this even if only for a moment it was worth the effort The text in. the painting stops then starts at intended leaving a space These gaps form 4 invisible lines that can direct the. eye to the landing zone and here the viewer can find Tranquillity Base.

G type star The colours are of necessity an artistic license due to the overwhelming brightness of stars but. are based on real scientific principles of thermodynamics and blackbody radiation. Cosmic Fever Dream 2019,Dexter Hon,ink and watercolour on paper. 01 Stargazer, Long ago humans started gazing at the vast open sky full of sparkling stars not knowing why they were fascinated by. such simple things We start our long journey from the drive of curiosity. 02 The First Step, Eventually humans landed on the moon In this historic moment this once distant celestial body became a closer. neighbour It was the first small step in a long journey but often the first steps are the most important ones. 03 The Pillar to Heaven, Human will create marvellous structures They will construct the space elevators a tower piercing through the.
