The work is intended to invoke the spirit and tradition of the Renaissance court Masque. It's a Scherzo which deals with both the comedy and pathos of modern affections and love. The astronaut is not too dissimilar from a character from the Commedia dell'arte, haplessly slipping into Botticelli's masterpiece never to reemerge from his 'Midsummer night's dream'[ quite unlike Bottom]. The 'Birth of Venus' leaves the astronaut mired in the unattainable reciprocation of affection from the goddess, forever trapped in the banality of seeking novelty in the contemporaneous.
