The countdown begins!
Originally, Marc Snyder and Bert Benson were going to collaborate on an art project by sending an etching plate back and forth through the mail. The idea was to have the two artists rework the plate and print limited editions of each stage of the process. But plates are heavy, and the postal service would have profited handsomely. Thus a completely different form of collaboration has transpired. The artists have agreed to lower their ambitions and adopt the NASA philosophy -- faster, better, cheaper.

Artists are encouraged to attack print it in any way. Add, subtract or completely obliterate Marc's original "astro helmet" print. This is my contribution to the project.
