My piece is part of a series entitled, “Chromatic Wanderers, a path stretching to the ionosphere.” This is a boundary where ionized gases play a crucial role in the propagation of radio waves and UV light, with particles traveling at incomprehensive speeds. The ordinary objects of the still life painting become animate, helping to understand the mega structures within. It is a universal theme of wanderers on the same journey through a world we use daily but still know little about.
