Study for a larger work titled, Source.

For thousands of years, multitudes of agricultural societies have worshiped this bringer of light and warmth, knowing it’s critical (if magical seeming) role in growing their life-sustaining crops. Our sun is the engine that powers our solar system. With slight exception, all the energy we use came from this star. For billions of years, organisms have been photosynthesizing it’s light and storing the energy that we now use as fossil fuels. Temperature variations on the earth’s surface drive the winds. And luckily, with photovoltaic (solar) panels we have found a way to directly harness the sun’s energy without altering our atmosphere. Hopefully we will soon make broad use of these scientific (if magical seeming) devices to avoid angering our source.

Art to help make science a more meaningful part of our lives.

Through countless mythological and religious traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.

What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
