09/12 Thoughts about the article: At Vassar, Seeing the Heavens With Paint, Pencil and Cocaine

“There is a deep human desire to know more about our surroundings,” said Mary-Kay Lombino, “But human understanding has its limits. We can’t really see the universe. We can’t conceive of its vastness. We can’t truly understand it. Still, we have this desire to do so.”

This sentence from the article At Vassar, Seeing the Heavens With Paint, Pencil and Cocaine attracted me to decide reviewing this article for my exploration. I enjoyed the mysterious aspect of universe. Human beings have limit access and knowledge about the universe, so there is imagination, and then art. I like how this article described the work of the artist Michael Benson, picturing the universe, his view of universe. It is fascinating that we have the desire to do so. Trying to have own view about universe. Thanks so much there is no standard answer. 

 

Astronomical is not only apply for science but also for other field. I want to explore that “other field”. I saw art, with all kinds of paintings and drawings; I saw design, with the various applications and decorations; I saw knowledges, with the sorts of different inspirations applying on real life.
