The word “Photography” comes from two Greek words, Photos (light) and Graphos

(writing, painting), so “drawing with the light”. Taking pictures needs some devices

and a particular process in Space and Time. According to Einstein the basic structure

of our world is SpaceTime and things exist in a spacetime continuum, a world of four

dimensions: height, width, depth and time. A generative process is usually referred to

as “setting in motion”. Motion is the essence of Life. To be alive is to move. Selecting

particular initial conditions, adding a fourth dimension and photographing motion by

means of randomised generative processes can give rise to very expressionistic

results. "Painting with light".

Light waves in a newborn Universe. From a dark background blue and multicoloured light spirals spring-up and form a wormhole. Rays loop and loop around, while matter flows through the handles of the hole. It disappears and reappears many times, while the Universe grows and tunnels in a quantum phantasmagoric evolution.

Tunnel in the Universe

A tunnel in the Universe emerges from the dark. While particles and energy wrap around and their velocity produces mass and curves straight lines, light sits at the bottom while darkness obscures the vault of the tunnel.

Dark matter is hidden there...!
