Twinkle twinkle little star…so how about that brand new car? Growing up, most of us imagined outer space either as mystical, terrifying, or an excuse to make wishes. New York City based photographer, Ignacio Torres, mixes theory and imagination to produce the extraterrestrial project “Stellar.” The animated creation sparked from the theory that humans came to existence through the death of a star. Serving as a visual metaphor, the movement between the particles and human subject express an artistic relationship. This upcoming artist is currently working on photographic and animated projects that explore the ideas of youth, identity, and scientific theory. Maybe if we are composed of cosmic star matter, we can start granting our own wishes.
