About this Item
‘I was taken with a linear image of the path of a spaceship going into orbit, describing a complex mathematical formula of the trajectory path. It is an amazing achievement of our times. The hang gliders are in different stages of this orbit into space. The stars and the other celestial elements are simply decorative and descriptive of the infinite sky. The concentric circles of pastel colours resemble celestial target.’1
