The works presented in this thesis deal generally with the assembling of various perspective points with which the location of man in his natural word is described. In scientific thought, if two given points are known and located, then by use of specific laws, a third previously unknown point may be charted. The images of man’s attempt to see a microcosm and a macrocosm have spoken curiously about his attempt to see the unknown. My intention in assembling these images is not to attempt to know the physical forces which govern them and their cycles, but to juxtapose them in a tableau where their textures, designs, and structure may be considered. The Venician Baroque ceiling figure embodies the supreme vantage point between which it can survey the scientific and the spiritual infinite. In a similar respect although physical, space photographs represent a new ability to view the microcosm and macrocosm as they merge imperceptibly into one another.
