Batik and photo heat-transfer on cotton
“It was a beautiful, harmonious, peaceful–looking planet, blue with white clouds and one that gave you a deep sense…of home, of being, of identity.”
Angela Manno replicates the Whole Earth image in this piece. The quotation Manno placed at the bottom of the batik, from Apollo 14 astronaut Ed Mitchell, mirrors what many others have said about how the global implications of the Apollo 17 image reshaped their views about humanity’s relationship to our planet.
