Generated using Celestia -a space travel simulation program- and based on real coordinates, these 12 prints together show a view into the universe from the planet Mercury, including views of Earth and the sun. Celestia was used as it works as a software-version of a planetarium, though better in effect as it can generate virtual space. It is one image split up into 12 parts. The numbers on each print (1:1, 1:2, etc.) correspond to their position in the collective image. The earth is the only planet not rendered and can be found in the print 2:3. The other celestial bodies have gone through several translations and filters, losing the original appearance for a simplified representation of them, without changing the size or their location.
Can be hung in a 3x4 grid (the original composition) or in a row.
