On the Golden Record there is a cover with diagrams demonstrating on how to play the record and how it works. The other symbols show the location of our sun and technical information about the recording such as wave forms, binary code, and the hydrogen atom.
I decided to invent my own paper sleeve for the "Johnny B. Goode" record using the diagrams from the Golden Record. My goal for this painting was to combine this record along with this NASA space mission. I hope viewers find the juxtaposition as interesting as I do.
