Book Art Video: Chart: These Bright Lights

I imagined Galileo's daughter looking up at the night sky, wondering about the constellations, imagining the stars as faces. Did Galileo have a daughter? In fact, he had two out of wedlock, and because illegitimate daughters were then deemed unmarriageable, they became nuns. That seems unfair. But it was the 17th century. And that is an aside.

Book three of the Circle Series is this one about stars and the night sky, then, Chart: These Bright Lights. I painted paper in dark blues and purples and black, letterpress printed the poem on top, then colored over the lettering with white pencil, revealing the text again. It was an experiment that worked better on some copies than others. So it goes.

And so it is.
