Cosmic GIFs Remind Us We’re All Made of Stars

One of famed astronomer Carl Sagan’s most powerful sayings was, “we are made of star stuff.” He was referring to the fact that the basic elements making up everything on our planet, including we humans, were forged in the bellies of ancient stars.

This notion of connectivity is the basis for photographer Ignacio Torres’s series of GIFs titled Stellar. Through four-frame animations, which show humans twirling among their own little clusters of stars and galaxies, Torres aims to express our ineffable link to the cosmos.

“I think people immediately grasp it, the concept of being made from stars,” says Torres. “I chose to conceal the subjects’ faces so people kind of see themselves in the imagery.”

The project is a simple expression of a vast and humbling thought. Early stars burning many billions of years ago acted as giant furnaces that fused atoms together to form heavier elements, like helium and carbon. These elements were ejected into the universe when the stars inevitably collapsed and exploded, eventually coalescing into the basic matter that now makes up our bodies and every thing around us. It’s a reminder that we’re all part of the same cosmic lineage.

“He who fights with monsters should be careful he doesn’t become a monster himself. Unless that makes him more effective at fighting monsters. Like he becomes a badass werewolf who knows how to use a sword and has magic armor. That’d be so rad.”

NeSpoon is a street artist from Warsaw, Poland. Her artistic focus is on the intricate patterns of lace, and breaking its granny stereotype by using it to beautify gritty urban spaces. NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”:

Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better.

NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street via
