Computer graphic print on Mylar.  Four printed images with decreasing light intensity are aligned and mounted with ~ 0.25 inch separation provide a 3D effect.  The original Hubble Space Telescope photo of M-100 Galaxy in Virgo was gifted to me in 1990s.  It was transformed by wet chemistry photographic techniques and computer graphics into four negative images each of reduced light exposure.  The photo is celebrated by NASA, the Air Force, and many others because it is the first successful Hubble Space Telescope photo after the Air Force space walk to test the repaired telescope camera focus.  The transparent Mylar prints are held in position by Lexan sheets; the separation of images provides a 3D effect.

  The sculpture was hung in a window of Explora Science Center to test the effect on kids in the art room.  Kids chose to sit under the sculpture over all other seating positions around a large table to work on their art projects.  I observed them unnoticed from across the room.  A smile came across their faces as they sat down under the sculpture, as sunlight came though similar to a stained glass cathedral window. 

“Velocity Beyond Matter”

15 in x 15 in. x 1.25 in.
This is the upper right quadrant of “Light-Time” sculpture, fabricated the same way to produce a 3D effect.  I am thinking about adding some colored transparent ink.
