Reading books on cosmology makes me want to use bright colored abstractions in spacescapes. Well, maybe not, but all that red from the redshifts has to go somewhere. This is inspired by galaxy clusters and gravitational lenses which squirt photons around major mass concentrations. Not to mention the dark matter, which you can't see in this picture at all!
I have been nibbling at Science once again through reading books, although I'm not doing any math, but perhaps I should start writing again on my other blog, ELECTRON BLUE 2, which has been in suspended animation since last year. Could you stand more writing from me, or is this quite enough?
This piece was done in both Photoshop AND Adobe Illustrator, which was responsible (through my action using it, of course) for the hard edged shapes of red and crimson and yellow.
