Celestial Fracture 

Winner of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year, Annie Maunder Prize for Image Innovation 2021.

Celestial Fracture
























The Cassini missions brought back some astounding imagery from our solar system. I have used a selection of the CICLOPS team's photographs of Saturn to create this piece. The patterns formed by Saturn, its rings and its moons are truly magnificent. The photographs have echoes of architecture, nature, art and design and are just as artistically inspirational as they are crucial for scientific study. I edited a number of their most spectacular images before ordering the photographs into a grid pattern and into this particular way to have remnants of familiar and stable imagery but in a fractured and disrupted way, with undertones of science fiction symbolism.
 

"The grace of Saturn and its magnificent rings still remains even when presented as a shattered into smithereens angular jigsaw. A striking piece of art which would look fantastic taking up the entire wall of a skyscraper lobby."
- Jon Culshaw, Comedian, Impersonator and Regular Guest on The Sky at Night.

"Thank you to Leonardo Di Maggio for the shoutout to CICLOPS through his artful presentation of our images...I'm a big fan of black and white, which draws the eye towards the abstract nature of structure and geometry." 
-Carolyn Porco, Cassini Imaging Lead, National Geographic Eliza Scidmore Awardee and Planetary Scientist. 

"This image looks so incredibly different from how we normally see Saturn, the jewel of the Solar System. From spheres and rings to jagged edges and jarring curves, these close-up views of Saturn and its moons highlight the planet in new and innovate ways."
- Emily Drabek-Maunder, Astrophysicist and Senior Manager of Public Astronomy at Royal Museums Greenwich.

“A spectacular dance between science and art. We associate Saturn with its timeless rings, but the quasi-cubist treatment, with its awkward angles, provided a refreshing perspective that really captured the jury’s imagination.”
- Imad Ahmed, a Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition Judge and Director of the New Crescent Society.

"I love this fractured picture of Saturn's rings and how it disrupts the way we're looking at an image we are very familiar with, and yet despite the disordered way the pieces are put back together, the same familiarity still comes through. I could not stop thinking about this image for days"
- Melissa Brobby, journalist, science communicator and Astronomy Photographer of the Year Judge.
