The World Never Ends

A spherical dodecahedron shape is created in a 3D modelling program. This shell is assigned as the ‘sun’ and the curves are made as yellow/orange LED lights. Half of this sphere is then distorted, pushed and pulled within the program and filtered with blue gradient film to emphasize its movement and energy. The effect is a spherical star floating in space while undergoing gravitational collapse, in the midst of changing states into a neutron star or a black hole.
