Melting Galaxy

This work is a manipulation of a 3D animated statue/sculpture I built in SecondLife as a centerpiece for my new built home.

In SL this 3D build is completelty animated - with the galactic space teture brightly glowing and slowly sliding down the edges of the ball down to the bottom where the swirling translucent streamers of light undulate down like a dangling tail from the ball. Also from the bottom of this art, light balls representing stars fall down through these streamers of light (and through the middle hollow part of my 3 story home). In SL I called my work the MELTING GALAXY.

Outside of SL this animation is very hard to represent. But, I decided to take a photo of my design and create a 2D artwork called MELTING GALAXY inspired from this SL 3D design.

In this work I added several layers of the same photo - modified and transformed and blended in different ways to give the impression of a galactic ball with space mists glowing within and around the main galxy. I used a couple filters to gift is an Artistic Expression of the swirls underneath and even within the ball.

I also added countless specks of stars (similar to a real birthing nebula in space). The bright white center symbolizes the center of the star creation. The streams are below the ball nebula as if gravity is pulling down and the melting of the nebula is pulled down into these streams of nebula extensions.

Finally I added a texture from the amazing texture creating Artist Pareeerica (from Flickr) and blended this texture into the work to provide an external boundries galactic mist surrounding and glowing the main nebula.
