About the work: This is a work reflecting the many minds that make the Psyche mission. It all began somewhere. The inspiration and motivation to live out what is beyond human comprehension.

Pixelated Psyche

November 15, 2017

Major: painting

Genre/Medium: watercolor pencils on cold-pressed watercolor paper

About the work: I incorporated the pixelated image from the latest radar observations of Psyche for the inspiration in my image. Psyche is still so unfamiliar to us, this is my interpretation. The thought of discovering the unknown and the pieces that we need to put together.
