About this work
Microgravity Droplets is a signed limited edition print of only 25 by Richard Garriott de Cayeux. One print from the edition of 25 created in 2008 is available exclusively on ArtWeLove. The original artwork from which this print edition is created was painted aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and represents the first form of action painting which does not involve or require physics of gravity. To create artworks unlike any that could be made on Earth, Dr. Garriott de Cayeux built a paint box and allowed droplets of paint to float before eventually forming spheres that would stick to the paper inside the box rather than falling flat onto the paper as in Earth gravity.
The purchase of this print will go to support the Challenger Center and its mission to create a scientifically literate population.
Dr. Richard Garriott de Cayeux is the first second-generation astronaut and one of the founding fathers of the commercial space industry. Vice-Chairman of Space Adventures, Dr. Garriott de Cayeux is also the founder of the online social gaming company Portalarium and one of the founding fathers of the on- line videogame industry as creator of the Hall of Fame Ultima online MMOR- PG series.
