In March 2016 I have participated at the 50th ESLAB symposium "From Giotto to Rosetta" - organized by the European Space Agency (ESA). The subject of this conference was the Rosetta mission to the comet 67P, during which for the 1st time a robotic probe was landed on a comet. During this symposium I was sharing my artistic research of the comet with scientists from around the world who have been studying it for over 20 year. I presented my paintings, ceramics and a music/video composition about 67P, as well as presented a poster and gave a small talk about my work.
I believe that the union of art and science is another way of exploring the world, it is a new creative perspective of learning about the Universe.
Scientist Jean-Baptiste Vincent from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research is explaining about the jets of water and dust. The painting behind him "67P I" is also about the study of the comet's vapor.
