People Having Fun With Statues (Part 2)
Previously: Part One
Images from A New Voyage Round the World, 1697, and Voyage of Guillaume Dampier…, 1705, two books describing pirate William Dampier’s voyage around the world. To learn more about Dampier’s contributions to science visit the exhibit Voyages: Scientific Circumnavigations.
The geography-cartography-topography of the planet Mars (which took me ageeeees to complete)! You can see the whole project here.
I wanted to show the striking dichotomy of the Marsian surface (the two hemispheres differ in elevation by 1 to 3 km). While the northern one-third is relatively flat and lies below the conventional ‘zero elevation’ level (aka the “sea level”, only there’s no ocean to evaluate), the southern hemisphere is mountains and highlands heavily cratered. Plus there are large river valleys and outflow channels cutting through the separation. Our deserts are quite boring in comparison!

My piece for the Fangamer <3 Attract Mode show happening on August 30th at 1923 Events in Seattle, WA. I recently got Pikmin 3 through that Mario Kart 8 promotional deal and I really loved it. Highly enjoyable and addictive little game. Also, Pikmin are adorable.
If you happen to be at PAX Prime or live/are in Seattle that day, should stop by the gallery show :D it will be fun.
