"This project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death."I.T.
"I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies."I.T.
"The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation."I.T.
" In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs."I.T.
"Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time."I.T.
The images are GIF files. He shot four regular still pictures from four different angles, at the same time with a synced flash and then merge them all together. The movement is created due to the fact that they are shown in a quick sequence in one frame.
Ignacio is a Texas born artist based in New York. He states that he is "currently working in personal projects that explore youth, identity and scientific theories through the use of photography, animated gifs and video."
