Luca Nino Antonucci - Second Star to the Right (2010)

Artist’s statement: 

"The study of astronomy is a practice that engages in a delicate balancing act between hope and truth. Our vision of the universe is a systematic categorization of existence. As inhabitants of our planet, we are all involuntary participants in the organization of the known universe and the exploration of the unknown. 

One could say that an entire pattern of thinking comes from studying the delicate position of the human being in the universe. Somewhere between fear and romanticism, all rational thought is held and subjected.
And the truth, whatever it may be, is conditioned by our relative position
and our ‘rational’ thought, which is constantly and consistently subject to
romanticism.

These cards are intended as valentines to the universe, pointing out a personalized romantic relationship we all have with the cosmos. All of text is taken from scientific reports.”
