Artist Statement

"In my design, I imagine a future mission to Titan, a moon of Saturn's that shows promising signs of water and potentially hospitable to human life. I chose Hermes II as its title for a few reasons. First, Hermes is the patron deity of travelers and diplomacy, an apt name for a mission of exploration. Also, in Greek mythology, the Titans were overthrown by the Olympians, so choosing Hermes (an Olympian) represents a reconciliation between our world and Titan. Finally, I'd like to think this is a series of missions that include astronauts from different countries of Earth, hence it being the second Hermes mission." - Daisy Patton

An artist/freelancer located in Boulder, Colorado, Daisy has lived all across America, such as California, Oklahoma, and Massachusetts. Her varied work focuses on history, memory, and social mythology, as well as playful illustration.
