This piece features Psyche against a black wooden background. The shape of Psyche is composed of many tiny nails, with string wrapped around them. In this jumbled string, the two biggest craters stand out. They keep their signature circular shape. The asteroid has tints of orange and yellow at the bottom of it and on top, signifying metal. On top of the asteroid, also in string and nails, is the word PSYCHE in all caps and grey.

Psyche: String Theory

Genre/Medium: string art

About the work: This piece is the Psyche asteroid pictured in string. It is another way for one to depict Psyche. After finishing the piece, I noticed that my piece, a jumbled mess of string, is similar to the jumbled mess of metal that makes up the Psyche asteroid.

Psyche is in the center of the image and it is being engulfed by a colorful world of possibilities if it had became a planet.

Imagining What Could Have Been

Major: astronomy & physics

Genre/Medium: acrylic on canvas

About the work: I wanted to highlight the idea that Psyche could have been a core of a planet. This is imagining what could have been and all the life that could have occurred. I think this is a major part of astronomy, imagining all the possibilities in the universe. On one side I made a colorful, crowded planet slice to convey a feeling of liveliness. There are trees, mountains, and other vegetation painted in ways they may not be seen on Earth. For example, there is a red mountain range with a dark whirlpool on one side of the planet. There are also forests that range from the normal green and orange we see on Earth to alien purple and blue trees. This slice fades into space. On the other is Psyche as it is now, empty and without life. There is emptiness save for a few stars off in the distance.
