Planet paintings in petri dishes, Series: From Where We Live We See the Backs of Stars

IMG_9062“When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them…
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself, …
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.” – Walt Whitman
