Cosmic Confetti

Some of you might remember "Colorforms," the playset for both children and adults which had plastic shapes that you stuck to a shiny black background. I always wanted a set of Colorforms but never got one. Now I have Photoshop to provide me with an infinite number of colorforms to stick together digitally, as in this doodle. But even with this infinity of color and form, I miss the feel of plastic shapes in my hand and the smell of the fresh plastic.

This is something light, just a doodle, but it's inspired by the cosmology I've been reading about, including multidimensional spaces and twisted shapes called "branes" which may or may not collide to form whole new universes.

"Cosmic Confetti" is Photoshop, 7" x 7", April 19, 2011.
