Sven Kahns, Finding Orbits, 2003

In Finding Orbits, Sven Kahns tries to find visual similarities to scientific diagrams of moons orbiting planets using the gravitational orbital shape of the outside of the egg and the round shape of the yolk. The blue background alludes to water and to the control the gravitational orbit of the moon has over tides on earth. The yellow color of the yolk might make you think of the sun. Together, all contribute to supporting life on earth, which brings it back to the egg as the start of life.
