Carbon Drawings

These drawings are created using the remnants of dead stars. Incorporating a range of materials containing atomic elements that trace back to the hearts of stars during their life and death, they serve as a monument to these fallen giants with carbon being the richest element within the drawings. 

 

Applied rapidly,  the Ink expands and disperses within the soaked paper with the rich element filled ink recreating the moment of death for a supergiant star. The drawings break down distance and time to echo the moments where death and the seeds of life meet. Bridging the vast distances between us and these galactic furnaces to reaffirm that we are not just part of the cosmos but are actively part of it. The carbon atoms in these drawings, the carbon atoms in your body, the carbon in our machines and the carbon in all other living beings can be traced back to stars the lived light years above your heads.
