blueshift (n.)
A decrease in the wavelength of radiation emitted by an approaching celestial body as a consequence of the Doppler effect.

Blueshift is a collaborative project between myself and astrobiologist Usha Farey Lingappa exhibited at Practice Gallery in Philadelphia. Originally performed as a chalk talk; the lecture, drawings and prints have been documented as an artists' book. Blueshift is an exploration of the contemporary science of astrobiology through the lens of science fiction. 

Lingappa is a PhD candidate at the California Institute of Technology. She built a scientific background working in astrobiology at NASA and SETI, biochemistry at Prosetta Biosciences, and astrophysics at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory.
