I've long held the view that artists are explorers and it was that concept which quickly became a basis for the Fluxface in Space project. Astronomers, astronauts and artists alike are pioneers continually engaged in an adventure full of new discoveries and new possibilities.

The artwork I chose to create for this exhibition is composed of found objects recovered while I was first contemplating this project. Before finalizing and releasing the Fluxface in Space call for art, I uploaded my self-portrait to NASA as a "test flight" to ensure the procedures were manageable. Once I had conformation of a successful transfer - the countdown for the exhibition began.
