This series has come into being not just as a derivation from but also an amplification of the discussion previously put forward by the author’s former works – both through painting and through photography (The Hubble and Universes). The starting point is aerial photographs taken by night of urban agglomerations. These photos are then edited with the aid of a computer software, so that an invented landscape is created – something that at first sight suggests constellations but will reveal its urban connotation as we step closer to the displayed image. The initial images are completely modified in order to engender a space that is both coherent and cosmic at first sight. However, it is at the same time a space that will yield to a more attentive look – showing its impossibility as an image of a topography or geography of the Earth.
