    I had the privilege to see the Kronos Quartet and I was left speechless. The beautiful integration of music, space imagery, nature, mathematics, and astronomy which came together to create Sun Rings, is a true masterpiece.
    The Voyager Golden Records are two phonograph records that were included aboard both
    Voyager spacecrafts which launched in 1977. The records contain sounds and 116 images
    selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form who may find them. The records will survive billions of light years after the Earth dies.
    In this painting, I incorporated 3 of the symbols on the record, sound waves, the scientific
    symbol for Pluto, and earth colours to emulate the Golden Record.
