Using the methods of tilt-shift photography, Italian artist St. Tesla takes ordinary pictures of space and recreates them to look like an assortment of exotic iridescent jewels. Images of familiar galaxies, nebulae and supernovae are suddenly made to appear like phosphorescent microorganisms floating in a petri dish of solution.
The artist goes on to explain the procedure that involves “taking pictures of space and applying the tilt-shift and then arranging everything with the brightness curves.”
The effect is nothing short of stunning, and St. Tesla helps us reimagine the splendors of the Universe, providing viewers a deeper appreciation of the vibrant visual characteristics and features of what exists throughout the cosmos.
