Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

Where humans go, so do gardens. They are crucial for life, and will certainly be part of our long-term space explorations. For oxygen, for food, for healthy life off of Earth, space pioneers will bring all manner of living things with them. This mission badge seeks to embody the spirit and ambition of NASA's deployable Vegetable Production System (VEGGIE) currently working on the ISS. My work seeks to highlight this important detail, and reimagine what space exploration looks like. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/experiments/383.html#summary — Joe Wirtheim
