Since I was small, I wanted to be an astronaut. Because my grades were never good enough, I fell into dreaming about it. The documentary film "Apollo 11" released in 2019 let me finally feel as if I were there. I brought my parents with me... I saw it twice. I brought my mother to the first showing – she fell asleep. Two weeks later I went with my father – he fell asleep too. For me it was as if it was all happening in real time. I dragged my nephew along and he knew: "It's like I was there!"

This started the journey of going through 100s of images from the Apollo missions. Thereafter, I started to look at Quantum Physics, Newtons Laws of motion and it just rolled on and on. Art and Science (one mathamatician said that math at that level is like doing art with a straight jacket on). 

Science and Art... science and love... NASA in Love.

Self discovery – External discovery becoming internal discovery. It's a series I am still immersed in. A discovery / study of science and art / relationship of art and math / Math and love. 

Below are a few examples of images that have influenced this project.
