Space Made Simple
I'm fascinated by space. As with the deep sea, it's amazing how little we know - and how much we continue to discover about these regions, seemingly every time we look.
This poster campaign is purely hypothetical. Whilst experimenting with cut-outs, sourced from the NASA archive, and a flat-bed scanner I noticed how the warping and stretching of shapes when dragged along the scan bed as it worked, reminded me of how light and matter is thought to streak inevitably into a black hole as it passes the event horizon.
As I experimented further, using more cutouts and various ways of moving them across the scan bed, more similarities between the resulting images and various space theories and concepts began to materialise. They were really simple ways of illustrating space - space made simple - and so the idea for a series was born.
