This artwork is from a series titled In Praise of Planetary Time.

The series is inspired by a blood moon eclipse in Apr 15 which gradually turned the lunar surface into an opaque brick-red orb. Prest was stunned by the sensation of planetary time, where slow and subtle comic changes could awaken her from a sound sleep.

The title of the series comes from “In Praise of Shadows”, an essay written in 1933 by Jun’ichiro Tanizaki. The author examines differences between traditional and modern aesthetics, architecture and craft. The essay discusses differing artistic intentions and lauds the patina of time as a comfort in face of modern efficiency.
