This series juxtaposes historic cartographic labels for the unknown and hobo glyphs (the meaning of which are noted in each title) onto snippets from the Hubble Deep Field image. These pieces are multi-generational collaborations, with a making process that spanned decades. My late maternal grandfather worked on the Hubble in Sunnyvale, CA, when I was a kid without a clue of the significance regarding his work and before it departed our little planet.
