We are, in the most profound sense, children of the Cosmos.

— Carl Sagan   

Stardust represents our connection with Earth and the Universe. It encourages us to appreciate ourselves and the beauty that surrounds us. The project is on a path of figuring out the magic behind the creation of the Universe, introducing us into the Microcosm and Macrocosm worlds, where The Above is reflected in The Below and vice-versa.

Through my artistic expression I strive to show the wonders of the Universe and our place in it. 93% of our body mass is made of stardust, we have stardust in us as old as the Cosmos itself. Through the eye of a satellite high above our planet: either looking down Below or up Above, I was delighted to discover multiple views of the Universe and Earth from above. The photos shared with us have been a game changing for me. Mesmerized an inspired by  Earth's aesthetic beauty of patters, shapes, colors and by Cosmos with its infinite worlds, stars and nebulae, I started creating my own Universe, inspired by the existing one.

Whether it is an image of paint and soap, pigments and resin or a Universe made of oil bubbles and paint, I am always astonished by the similarities exposed. Colors, shapes and textures from my creations are remarkable close to the ones we have on Earth and in Space. With macro photography I magnify unique, tiny structures and freeze a short-lived moment representing natural processes.

I consider myself an experimental artist, using macro photography as a medium, making art for photography and using photography as art. Through mixed media and photography, I create infinite worlds, shapes and patterns that reflect the chaos of the natural world. These creations aim at provoking our imagination to new or unexplored territories, bringing the Universe and Earth closer to our perception.

When I start working on a project, I never know how it is going to turn out. I have control over colors and technique , which is purely experimental, but the result is always mesmerizing and unique. My pictures and paintings represent only fragments of my creative process, where I challenge my curiosity by experimenting with different materials and liquids, using art as a vessel and enjoying the creation.

Photography has been a tool to explore my work, enabling me to capture and then review a moment in time, making the result of my experiments visible.Through the camera you can see and learn more than meets the eye, capturing the unexpected, holding time in place and visiting the outside-inside worlds. Even though every shot I take is unique, if you look closely and try to capture the dynamic of pouring liquids, you can see the Earth's movement or the expanding Universe. 

I think that inspiration is everywhere, you just need to know when and where to look.
