Cosmic Images

There are so many talented artist who dabble in experimental photography and ways of making the impossible seem real and possible. One photographer has literally taken those moving images we all know and love from the Harry Potter books and movies, and they have made them a reality (even if it is just online) in a way that is quite cosmic. Animation and art like this give hope to the future of photography. Will we one day look at a newspaper and see a moving image in the headlines? Microsoft even features an interactive and ever changing newspaper in their vision of the future video that is circling the internet. The day that we see moving pictures in places we never thought imaginable may be closer than we think.

This 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.
