Wandering Black Hole

Astronomical black holes are familiar to us now. These are places, collapsed stars, where gravity is so strong that not even light can escape. They are usually situated in the centers of galaxies, where their intense force sucks in clouds of gas and even entire stars. Sometimes, though, black holes just wander through space, pulling in whatever they encounter, and distorting space around them. That's what's in this small concept study. I hope to show this and other astronomical and mathematical art at Balticon in a week or so.
