For as long as human beings have walked the earth, there has been a great interest in what lies above our heads. Our fascination begins with the question of what these points of light are among the infinite black and where they come from. Where does our existence fit in with all that is contained in the universe?From the first observations of the night sky to capturing the beauty of the stars on a canvas, this exhibition strives to show how science and art come together when answering the question of what lies above us. When every point on Earth offers a new perspective on the night sky, it is no surprise that the heavens have been represented in infinite variations by various people. This begins with the naked human eye and evolves through telescopes and satellite photos.Our concept of the night sky incorporates the basic human instinct to explain the unknown. Our species has accomplished this through millennia by creating stories, or constellations to accompany the stars. Later telescopes were built and planets discovered. An artist's fascination with depicting the beauty of a starry, starry night can be seen as finding peace in the intangible. Finally, humans have taken to the skies themselves to learn more about the great mystery that is our universe.
