Silver Aluminum Print,

From the Planeta Series, Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in our Solar System. The aluminum print shows two overlapping views of Mars: a “positive view,” in black which is the view of the planet looking up from the earth, and a “negative view,” in white which is the view of the planet looking down on the earth. The overlapping views remind us that we are part of and in space at all times, never separate. Astronomical-specific mathematical information along the arcs and lines describe the planet’s galactic location and specific characteristics including right ascension, declination, azimuth and atmosphere. Mars has 2 moons and an orbital period of 687 days.
