IN THE SHADOW OF LIGHT

 

This book is about our solar system with an emphasis on its ungraspable size. I think scientists often are trying to make everything fit into our realm of understanding, making it almost too logical and therefore giving us a very unrealistic perspective of reality. During my primary education, I remember that we touched upon the solar system a few times, and the planets were presented neatly beside each other and would (physically) fit into the chapter. 

    

With this book, I´d like to try and give the reader a more realistic perspective of the grand scale of our solar system and find a way to emphasize inter-planetary distances using physical space, text, and images. As a background for the texts and images, stars in space will be created using a sumi-ink wash with salt. Over this, images of planets and text describing them will be printed.
