Artist's Description

The work\'s based on traditional star catalogues in which the outlines of mythological creatures were fitted to the patterns of stars in the sky, creating the constellations we are familiar with today. Later when Western explorers mapped the parts of the Southern sky not visible from Europe, some of the constellations they chose were more contemporary such as Microscopium (the Microscope) and Pyxis (The Mariner�s Compass). This work extends that concept to the present day by creating entirely new constellations based on elements of our modern world and fitting them to the real stars of the Southern sky. It\'s a sort of a reflection of the world below which aims to simply illustrate the modern world, not to judge it. It encompasses the good, Miraculous Curem (The Antibiotic), the bad Servus Obscurum (The Invisible Slave) along with many concepts who�s value or lack thereof, is entirely dependent on the outlook of the viewer.
