Stratosphere (Intermediate Printmaking)

This image, titled "Stratosphere", is a screen printed collage I made featuring Joseph Kittinger skydiving along with some illustrations I made of outer space.

While I had previously heard of Project Excelsior, the event Kittinger was apart of, it wasn’t until I watched the music video for “Dayvan Cowboy” by Boards of Canada that I actually saw footage of the jump. I vividly remember being stunned while watching the video for the first time. Not only was I inspired by the beautiful music, but also the breathtaking archived cinematography. It was with this inspiration that I created my design.
