Krispy Creme Galaxy Clusters


‘A group of astonomers is a CLUSTER.’

– Dr. Christopher Fluke

‘Language is like a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to , while all the time we long to move the stars to pity.’

– Flaubert, Madame Bovary

Have started to write the art. Which involves joy and paranoia and endlessly lamenting the inadequacy of words as a thin veiled attempt to disguise the fact I cant find the right ones.

Amazing interviews by Nicky proving inspirational. A huge array of accents and personalities and astounding eloquence.

Things about the final form are emerging namely the importance of Kamahl and donuts.

Have WONDERFUL web producer and designer and builder on board CHRISTIE STOTT. Hail Christie. Worship Christie. She speaks fluent nerd of an incomprehensible dialect.

And WONDEFUL videographer of everything ANDY LANE. Who is dedicated to making my Corolla part of the Art. So of course he has my vote.

Astronomers can talk. There is no doubt that once you get them going, they aren’t shy. Swinburne is blessed with some eloquent speakers of fluent astronomy.

The first round of audio interviews have proven a bounty of material featuring:

-frozen sound waves that emanated from the big bang
-how to be insulted by dark energy
-the enigmatic millisecond pulsar
-giggling about ripples in space and time
-falling in love with PSRJ0437 minus 47’15”
-baryonic supremacy and ptolemaic epicycles
-the politics of collisionless matter
-the opaque veil of reionisation
-fragile discs and cluster neighbourhoods

Dealing with the extreme richness of detail, and the colliding imperative to streamline.

Delighted to find that a coma is a dust cloud around the head of a comet.
