I was inspired by a quote from Ursala Le Guin, "I'll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my home world that truth is a matter of the imagination" Her words echo Dr. Sagan's words that spark human imagination to reach beyond our galaxy in search for the possibility of life existing on other planets.
The story is a loose history of space exploration which unfolds with visuals using mixed media and quotes from Dr. Carl Sagan and historical facts from NASA. The collaged images are from NASA's website.
I liked the idea to construct the journal as a personal record of an epic adventure which continues today. The simple handmade quality contrasts with the high tech of space exploration.
"Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars." Dr. Carl Sagan
