Abstract: This work is a series of digitally altered photographs that were taken at NASA Space Center Houston. The artist transforms and reinterprets these iconic themes to meditate on the creative role of the human imagination in so-called techie or "non-fuzzy” endeavors, and also to suggest that we eschew these rigid distinctions. The images explore the role of the human imagination both in solving the technological and engineering challenges for the Apollo missions, as well as in continuing to inspire us today, as we reflect on the meaning of these historic feats to the wider human experience, evoked here through image titles referencing popular culture.
