Apsis by Henrik Isaksson Garnell

Isaksson Garnell´s exhibition Apsis is very much an investigation of where the centre of a celestial body is located and he combines scientific eager with aesthetic sense. An apsis, plural apsides, is the point of greatest or least distance of a body from one of the foci of its elliptical orbit. In modern celestial mechanics this focus is also the centre of attraction, which is usually the centre of mass of the system. Historically, in geocentric systems, apsides were measured from the centre of the Earth. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImagehttp://banomaly.wordpress.com/
