Once you launch, you’re on your own. You are propelling (with escape velocity*) out of Earth’s atmosphere and reference for gravity dissipates. At which point it becomes a solo coasting through the cosmos. However deep into space you are, you still retain a tethered life line that guides and supports your journey. A ‘mission control.’
What’s the artistic relationship?
It is easy to initially launch, solo, and fly with confidence but we should always remember to be in tune with our ‘mission control.’ Whether that exists in the physical or metaphysical world, ‘mission control’ is our way of staying connected to our why. It’s our consciousness, our compass, our artistic navigator.
