"Joan of Arc Riding My Little Pony" - Process Video

“We are made of star stuff,” is Carl Sagan's lasting insight, the take-away line from his landmark television series, Cosmos. His 13 episode cosmological tour-de-force presents thrilling evidence that even our simplest, most private actions and dreams can be best understood when placed in a context of the entirety of being.

A few days ago, by seeming happenstance, I came across composer John Boswell's ingenious tribute to the late astronomer: "A Glorious Dawn.” Having just completed my edit of the 16 month process video that accompanies the latest oil on canvas, Joan Of Arc Riding My Little Pony, I played the composition along with the finished clip.

The uncanny congruence of the two was striking – a match made in the heavens. As if evidencing an awesome super-structure in operation, could the structure at play be the structure of play? Shine on, fellow star stuff!
