Melanie King is our AstroArtist of the month. She's an artist that look at the histories of photography and astronomy and sees parallels between since the 19th Century. She asked, "did the study of light by polymath inventors (Herschel, Talbot, Daguerre, Maxwell) in the field of astronomy contribute to the invention of the photograph and how is the study of light currently being used to find out more about our universe and dark matter?" Her interesting artwork explores our cultural past through photography and how important astronomical events have influenced our population.

"My artwork intends to remind the viewer of the interconnectedness between the individual and the universe as a whole."
