REPRESENTATIONS OF KEPLER-22B
“Representations of Kepler-22b” is a project that illustrates humanity’s fascination with space exploration, and the desire to leave Earth in order to repopulate foreign planets. While I believe that the study of astronomy is extremely important our yearning to leave Earth assists our ignorance of global warming, habitat loss and planet destruction.
These images are taken of various landscapes in a diverse selection of locations. The botanical subjects were edited in a way to make them look surreal and otherworldly. My objective is to present an alternative way to view the environment that we are so fortunate to be a part of, yet we take for granted. I chose Kepler-22b since this planet is very similar to earth however it does not subsist in our galaxy.
