Journal borrows from John Hershel's observations of astronomical objects made during the years 1834-38, to create a poetic record of my own inner universe. I appropriate words and fragments from Herschel's discoveries and combine them with my own poetry to construct a new whole. They describe a kind of double observation, consolidating both inner and outer phenomena. 

The ongoing project will assume different forms, such as an artists' book and an installation, as well as being continuously updated online.
