Title Traces from the astrolabe: art and astronomy
Creator(s) Armstrong, Daniel
Year presented 2006

Publisher Deakin University
Place of publication Burwood, Vic.
Description of resource 1 portfolio
Summary This portfolio represent an ongoing investigation into relationships between art and astronomy with particular reference to photographic imaging of the cosmos and how such imaging has influenced the mapping and modelling of the universe. I am also interested in the subjective interpretation of astronomical observations and the point at which such images fail to represent, ie, the blurred image, which may represent the limits of technology as well and opening the possibility for metaphorical readings and imaginings on the part of the observer.
