M42 #1

Independent video art project.

How real is our visual conception of the universe? Different images of the great orion nebula were fused into each other, visualizing the search for unified structures in space. The process becomes visible as the nebula appears almost as a living, breathing organism. M42#1 looks at the links and inbetweens. New features emerge and dissapear. Which of them is real and which is just a digital artifact…

The sound was directly derived from the image data through sound mapping techniques and combined to a spacious sound design.
