"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."

I thought these photographs were really cool. I like the idea of creating "galaxies" through the use of confetti and dust. They have a dreamy feel about them and I like the photographers use of gesture. The use of props and gesture as well as the background do a good job of creating an emotion within the image. I especially love the ones that were taken during sunset. The illusion of a galaxy being present at sunset is really beautiful.
