|"Stardust" (150 x 150 cm - 2013)|
Still using Hubble Space Telescope's photo "Pillars of Creation" the center of the Eagle nebula. The tower of gas that can be seen coming off the nebula is approximately 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers high, depicting a large region of star formation. The view is a 360 degrees panorama, giving a sense of alleged "positive curvature" of our Universe.
This painting will be part of my upcoming exhibition on art + science "Two Cultures?".
Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people. – Carl Sagan
