Uraniborg, an art + music collection

Uraniborg was built on the island of Hven by Tycho Brahe, the Danish astronomer. It was an amazing building that, unfortunately, did not remain standing after Tycho's death.

I'm building this virtual Uraniborg to house a collection of original images and musical compositions that I'm dedicating to the memory of the great astronomers, physicists, and mathematicians who were inspired by the cosmos.
