Lobby of 733 Third Ave
New York, NY


Hours: Monday-Friday, 8am-7pm

 
Inspired by the Cassini spacecraft flyby of the planet Saturn (launched by NASA in 1997), these photographic canvases represent an imaginative interpretation of Saturn’s beautiful and dazzling rings of ice and rock. Each ring is named for a letter of the alphabet, in the order that it was discovered. The combinations of light, color, and geometry in the canvases are meant to capture the rings' awe and mystery, which have fascinated people since Galileo first viewed the rings of Saturn over 400 years ago (1610 AD).

The sister canvas, Titan, projects a massive, solid image. Titan is the second-largest moon in our solar system. The layered composition of the piece represents the dense water, ice, and rocky materials, which comprise the surface of Titan.
