COLORING SPACE chandra.harvard.edu/art/color a collaboration with Chandra X-Ray Center, Harvard (NASA) and Organiverse "Starry Night" edition.
Paintings in this video are shown actual size. The original ORGANIVERSE set was created on the island of Madeira and in Morocco by Netherlands born international artist Henri van Bentum in 1972.
The ORGANIVERSE portfolio consists of 100 painting or spheres done in pointillism, dot by dot.
"The work of Henri van Bentum reminds us of organic processes on the cosmic and microcosmic levels. His work helps me understand the vastness, complexity and beauty of the cosmos. van Bentum's work is executed with a fine sense of colour and other elements. I see his work as a paradigm for enduring works of art in the future." Former Professor Leslie Mezei, Computer Sciences, U of T.
This work was displayed at "From the Earth To The Universe" (FETTU) exhibiits as part of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 throughout Victoria, BC, Canada. FETTU was a Cornerstone Project of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA), and its legacy continues in "BIYA" (Beyond International Year of Astronomy"). Special thanks to Garry Sedun, and Joe Carr.
