This image shows two large swirling circular shapes beginning to merge together. The shape on the left is blue and green with textured cracks and swirls representing the earth and the shape on the right is mostly orange,with accents of red, yellow and black, that is also textured with cracks and bumps and merging to the earth.The shape on the right represents psyche. These two images are painted on a backdrop of space which is black with extremely tiny, fine white dots representing stars. All through out the space there are white infographics of data gathered so far about psyche like the astronomical units of it, its orbit time, the elements it is made out of etc.

About the work: This piece explores the transfer of information between the asteroid Psyche and the Earth. The mission to Psyche the asteroid could provide us with more information about Earth’s core. Thus, this piece depicts what information scientists have discovered so far about Psyche through the white infographics and pieces of data. The Earth is green and blue and appears to be merging with a ball of orange, red, and black, which represents the information about Earth’s core Psyche could provide. Instead of depicting what Psyche, a metallic asteroid, could possibly look like, I decided to focus on the data transfer about cores by portraying an image of what someone would usually think of when talking about the Earth’s core.
