Ron Miller’s depictions of the moon draw viewers into an alternative look at the sky. In place of the moon are the planets, bringing Mercury and Venus closer to the earth’s atmosphere.
Seven different planets are used in Miller’s series. The planets depicted retain their ordinary shape and color, adding an authentic style to his artistic project. The size of the spheres is also true to their original masses, giving way to some large and small takes on the faux moons.
A desert-based road is used as an entry point into the planets. As the road is going in one direction only, Miller has made it seem as if one is riding ride into the universe.
