You're the alien. This is your Spaceship



Sometimes, when I get the opportunity to look up in the sky and watch the stars, I think about how we're essentially travelling through space in this organic spaceship called Earth. We're so absorbed with our day to day activities deep within our ship that most of us barely even look out the window. It's fascinating to think that we're constantly moving. Not only are we spiraling around the sun (see video below), but the entire solar system is also travelling through space. When I'm on a plane and get to see parts of our planet from the sky, I think about things like that. I can only imagine what sort of thoughts I would have viewing earth from the space station or the moon. These random thoughts led me to paint the artwork above.
