About the work: This hoop depicts the mission’s Principal Investigator, Dr. Lindy Elkins-Tanton, on a watercolor interpretation of the Psyche asteroid. I wanted to make this piece as a tribute to Dr. Lindy as thanks for bringing humanity to the mission. Her image is centered on the black and purple background to represent both the heart of the Psyche mission and the potential we have as creators and scientists.
