   Alone Together  ( Everything I know About Love I Learned Through You ) , 2016-2018 Two white pencil circles on pigment print and a beam of tungsten light 12-19/32” x 16-15/16” (32cm x 43cm)  The astronomical miracle of the Earth-Moon system represents the paradox occurs that two beings become one, yet remain two. In order for a two things or two persons to function as a single system requires mutual attraction, support and well-balance. Eventually, one will perish before the other. A human life is a fraction of time compared to that of the universe, but we experience the very same miracle ourselves - no matter how short in time it may have been or will be.

 1. The Earth and Moon are linked together by a force of mutual attraction called gravity; thus, behave as a single system.  2. This system could be compared to a dumbbell with a heavy weight on one end and a lighter weight on the other end (illustrated above). A dumbbell weighted in this manner would have a center of balance (or center of gravity) closer to the heavier end. For the unbalanced dumb-bell to spin smoothly, it must be rotated about the center of balance.   3. The Earth-Moon system resembles the unbalanced dumbbell. The Earth compares to the heavy weight and the Moon to the lighter weight. Gravitational force replaces the connecting bar.
