The Universe is a magical wonder that is not only fascinating to look at but is also a mind blowing reaction between matter and energy that was non existent 14 billion years ago.
Within this project I create a visual illusion by taking a mundane material to make it grandiose and beautiful. Using X to describe Y by capturing micro photographs of nail polish to resemble the Universe. This liquid object which consists of shimmer and glitter reacts like a Big Bang effect as it is dropped in water, expanding as soon as the thick liquid touches the surface and spreads out into what looks like stars through a macro lens. This reaction is similar to Albert Einstein’s prediction of energy transforming in matter and matter into energy; E=mc2 the Big Bang that began the build of our universe.
