Astro Cards by September Khu
"Perhaps it was my recent involvement with assisting a social scientist on a space research, hence planets and moons, rockets and satellites have been at the forefront of my mind.
Thinking about space made me feel very small, though I know it is not insignificant. I have, no doubt, that the planetary system around us somehow affects every living thing on Earth. As ancient wisdoms have informed us - that it is all written in the stars. I wanted to remember the Great Conjunction of Jupiter & Saturn in the winter solstice of 2020. Then I figured I should paint our solar system and maybe I could turn them into cards."
"The first set of cards were just picture cards. I figured out later that I should have some information at the back to make it informative. Pluto was added at the very end as it is important part of astrology readings although downgraded from a planet to dwarf planet. For admiration and celebration of the human dreams, I have included Tesla Starman’s view of Earth from Space."
