Death stars

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

From Stellar by Ignacio TorresThis project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death. I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies. The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation. In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs. Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time.

I really love this concept and think this series is truly beautiful. I find it really interesting that these works can only fully be appreciated as gif files - if you were to have a framed print it would still be beautiful, but wouldn't do the work it's full justice. A sign of the times.
