Is it the Sky, the Sea, or the Earth?

Many have commented on the similarities between the deep sea and the deep sky: both have been barely explored and are expected to contain mysteries to be yet unveiled.
The interesting thing is that you can come face to face with some 170 Mio. years old piece on earth that contains structures from the sea and shows geometries from the deep skies. That inspired me to process the image in a way that it resembled more an underwater shot or an image from space.

Dark Matter 27811_005

You are looking here at the polished surface of some dark marble containing ammonites (resembling spiral galaxies) and belemnites.
An interesting mixture of chaos and order.

Happy New Year!


  1. Very nice work


  2. Thanks for your comment, Westcoast!
    I have this image printed for my exhibition and people found it very interesting, strange, thought-provoking at yesterday's opening.

  3. Anytime you can provoke thought and brake away from the norm/mundane is a good thing in my mind.

    Also really like "Mirror Wood"
