I think *you’re* one of the good wobbles.
Ignacio Torres, Stellar
“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.”
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.
Quote in context: “Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can. Because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.”
—Carl Sagan, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Ep. 1: “The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean.”
