NASA channeling David Hockney, via Ethel Baraona.
I hadn’t thought about the connection between Hockney’s “joiners” and NASA composites before, so seeing it brought up made me wonder. It turns out the artist’s first works using that medium were around 1970, so a few years after the Surveyor images seen here. The majority of works in the composites section of his site date from around 1982, well after the first round of planetary surveys.
Nonetheless, it’s an interesting topic to muse on.
