Ignacio Torres

Visual Artist Ignacio Torres caught my eye via Nylon Blog and really drew me in. Here he explains what he was going for with these incredibly interesting gif. images...see more of his amazing work on his website Ignacio Torres.
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.
