Alien Schematics – Dark Side of the Moon edition – purchase options below
When I first came across the oldest surviving daguerrotype of the moon, said to be taken by John William Draper in 1840, I wanted to make art out of it immediately. I spent a lot of time experimenting with different ways to alter or replicate the image, but everything I tried only seemed to take away from its impact.
I was ready to give up entirely when “Alien Schematics,” the most sought-after artwork I made in 2017 popped into my head. Many people had suggested it could be a representation of the dark side of the moon, so it seemed only natural to look at the two side by side and hope for inspiration. And then as if by magic, the moon itself crawled inside my artwork and made a home there.
I’m very excited to have created something this special – particularly because it makes this treasured artwork available to more people.
