About the work: The organic shape of Psyche contrasting with the rigid, sharp-angled spacecraft inspired me to look for more of the beautiful, round shapes associated with the Psyche mission. The first and largest piece was inspired by the path the Psyche spacecraft will take from Earth to the asteroid with a gravity assist from Mars. The second piece was inspired by Dr. Rona Oran’s presentation on what the electromagnetic field might look like around Psyche. The last piece captures Psyche itself in vibrant colors from the mission badge.
