dc.description.abstractThis MFA Thesis describes the inspiration and artistic process through which the work exhibited in Citizen Scientish was made and how that process informs my assertion of the actual existence, rather than mere visual metaphor, of natural celestial bodies and configurations of those bodies depicted in my visual work, itself informed by observation of and meditation on anthropogenic, terrestrial surfaces. The series of images created for this thesis establish a creative dialectical discourse with the previously scientifically discredited Celestographic work of 19th-century playwright, painter, and amateur astronomer August Strindberg (1849 – 1912) and with current popular, though widely debated, theories of multiple universes. This reassessment establishes that the images presented in my work, while done so in the context of fine art, are representations of fact tantamount to astronomical and cosmological discovery.
