Painting in Space
About the Art Work
The concept of the space paintings project is a reference to Eytan's gaze and respectively the gaze through the camera from the ISS. It is an image from the outside world, a new and unexpected point of view, scientifically distant, a supposedly neutral view of the world.
This point of view stands in contrast to the physical and material in which the artist is immersed or imprisoned, the world of limitations and gravity versus the world of the astronaut's levitation.
