ACTUALIZING EARTH, PAINT, SELF.

"City of Stars"
All the ways our exploration of the cosmos has inspired communities
and cultures that would not otherwise do so, to think about the universe.

This interdisciplinary conference will explore humanity's fascination with the sky, a strong and sometimes dominant element in human culture—with emphasis on how this influence has reached demographics (especially people in cities) where one would not otherwise find the occasion to look up. 

Scholars from multiple disciplines, including the humanities and sciences, as well the arts, are invited to present and discuss their work on the cultural impact and inspiration of astronomical phenomena, from a historical or contemporary perspective. The list of topics discussed at previous INSAP conferences is available at the INSAP Viii website.<<<

GRAVITATIONAL LENSING AS ILLUSTRATED BY NASA; FOLLOWED BY A CRO-KEN PAINTING.

"GRAVITATIONAL SLIDE OR GRAVITATIONAL LENSING
The gravity of a great body, such as our moon, refracts light
so that a star that is seen near the moon; is, in actuality, behind it.





MANIPULATING SPACE, TIME AND MATTER
The four clear domes, in photo above, were placed on an active paint experiment.
The domes manipulate time by arresting the development of a painting to capture that moment.  
The upper dome also manipulates space as one follows the blue and white streak
from right to left to see a place under the dome and its’ actual point of origin.


Speed Elements, Cro-Ken's palette, (neither oil, nor acrylic); 
creates inclusiveness amongst other disciplines
such as cosmology. 

I negotiate and navigate paint like a river,
yet I know its source.  

Simply put, I manipulate space, time and matter…
and the matter is not just paint.
