So dullard that I am, i starred this art work and didn't comment on it. You know, I often hunt folk down who do it to my work and have words with them: so congrats my diet is ruined with all the humble pie I'm scoffing now.
So why did I star this piece of art? Did I do it because in my own work, Double Edged Sword, I see similarities in my own mental design brief for that universe. Of a world still married to ours, but one that has finally gotten its act together and gotten out into space. Commercial mining, off world colonies, the harnessing of the sun for solar power...okay those last two aren't pictured here, but I am sure they're around here somewhere.
As I look at this I am reminded of an aborted short story I tried to write, of the coast guard trying to save the lives of some protestors who were trying to cover Halley's Comet in a protective solar parasol to keep it from being minded. It never got very much further than the drawing board, but now its back on the mental dash board. Than you for that.
