Laura Krasnow: the_space_between_the_stars

Laura Krasnow uses the medium of photography to explore the connections between the artistic and scientific realms of inquiry.

Working with traditional and non-traditional art making tools, including printmaking, digital photography, film and Polaroid film, drawing and paint, she seeks to interpret theories of physics, math and neurological research, to reconstruct individual recollections of time, place, and space.

The space between the stars is not empty. The interstellar medium is the matter and radiation that exists in the space between the star systems in a galaxy.

These images are part of an ongoing project titled, the_space_between_the_stars.

There are substances and matter that exists within the universe that cannot be perceived by our present observations. The goal of this project is to interpret and define this mystery…to explore the connections between the artistic and scientific realms of inquiry within the physics theories and explanations. My photographs aim to force the viewer to look beyond the obvious…. to reveal the essence beyond the normal visual spectrum…to make the invisible visible.
