Brooklyn-based artist Marsha Cottrell works in the same building as me, on the same floor, for the same company. In fact, a couple of years ago (though we don’t work in overlapping departments) I worked at the desk directly adjacent to her. It makes it all the more lovely then—meetings, corporate jargon wading, and deadlines aside—to have taken five and snook a peek at the always-inspiring But Does It Float, admire a collection of breathtaking images, and realize they were iron oxide drawings by Marsha. I urge you to visit Marsha’s site and see the rest of the series. For those of us in New York City these may be the only constellations we’re likely to see but the other stars might be right under your nose.
