Genre/Medium: oil pastel
About the work: Color plays an important role in this piece, as the colors used are based on the Psyche Mission logo. I wanted to represent that what we know about the surface of Psyche now is all based on the research being done by the Psyche team. Eventually, their work will lead to us being able to finally see all the textures that grace Psyche’s surface. Currently, it is believed that because Psyche may be mostly metal, the craters from impacts will have “peaks” around their edges, which may be unique to Psyche alone. Therefore, this is my interpretation of what Psyche’s surface may possibly look like.
