Space Shuttle Mission: STS - 133
True to an Aquarian child’s spirit, the 1960s Apollo Program intrigued me – Exotic - Unique - A Journey - A Discovery - A Galactic Event - The Dawning of a New Age “…Peace for All Mankind.” Apollo 11’s Columbia/Eagle successfully launched as the first manned lunar landing! Then, on July 20, 1969, the Eagle landed in the Sea of Tranquility! Ah, but, this is where a twist of events occur. According to my creative version: Neil Armstrong & Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin take their historic walk on the Moon, plant the American Flag, leave a plaque, collect moon rocks, and, do what all good tourists do – take pictures. Then, they celebrate the 1st Happy Hour on the Moon with their Kittynaut mate, HappyHourKitty, while sipping on Blue Moon Martinis!
“Kittynaut’s 1st Happy Hour on the Moon” – is whimsical postcard-size art created for the FLUXFACE IN SPACE project as a unique, mixed-media collage intuitively repurposing a vintage 1969 postcard featuring an official NASA photograph from the Apollo 11 Mission. Embellishments and uniquely textured moon rocks created with kitty litter, red wine, glitters and adhesives complete the work. An interesting fact, the photograph of the collage was taken on July 20, 2010.
