APERO at the Magoski Arts Colony

This piece was composed in the night. I took this image in the Mojave at night and re-arranged the figures to be facing away from each other. You see only the back of their heads as they gaze into the dark sky. Above you see a shooting star..the figures are disconnected yet together..as we all are when we look up to the heavens as individuals. We are unified in our singularity.
In physics 'singularity' is a point at which a function takes an infinite value, especially in space-time when matter is infinitely dense, as at the center of a black hole.
The figures are in a circular placement here. They have created a center...
a center for the stars to reside...
I wanted the composition of this piece to express that.
The three brought Gifts for Apollo.
These gifts were meant to be given to Corvus, the Raven
"Wanton babbler! see thy fate!
Messenger of mine no longer,
Go to Hades with thy prate! Weary Pluto with thy tattle!
Hither, monster, come not back; And — to match thy disposition —
Henceforth be thy plumage black !"
aurum, thus, et myrrham
Continuata loco tria sidera, Corvus et Anguis,
Et medius Crater inter utrumque jacet-
