studio snaps 5

in response to wanting to disperse the fragments of the work for the show, i've named and ordered all the pieces that seem to want to leave my studio. below are the circular discs which have single holes punched out that vaguely align with the star atlas. Each has a unique title, a unique surface, and is born from the living skin of its mother map.

these little packets contain all the stars punched from the map - the empty spaces. these too are uniquely named, but do not match up with discs above, because they are not surface fragments, they are the elements on the constellations. i haven't decided why they are essentially so different, and i'm not sure it's necessary to.

the last envelopes contain fragments from the templates used to punch the holes into the star map. they are neither remnants of map skin, nor living stars from the constellations. they are both older than that (the guides for the constellations) and younger (physically made after the map was completed). These are not named, but numbered: Remnants 1 - 19.
