I also used an instrumentation plate made for Swift and have used it to create an emboss to mimic the satellite shifts. Taking the data collected over the afterglow period (around 7 days) from the event, solar plate prints have been used to express this data. The X-ray data print is a very dense image with even the faintest afterglow being registered. The UV data print uses the ‘white’ band of UV/Optical wavelengths recorded – closest to what the naked eye would see through a telescope if it were pointed at the event. The Violet afterglow records data in the violet range of light.
Gold pigment has been used in the embossing to reflect the element on earth that is a tangible connection between human civilisations and these spectacular events of the early cosmos.
(please note attached images show unframed prints for the X-ray afterglow and ultraviolet afterglow, the violet afterglow is shown framed, all prints will be presented as framed if selected).
