This artwork is inspired by the process that takes place in the earliest days of a stellar life and it is a third work in the series “The Life of Stars”.
“Like people, stars are born, they grow old and they die. Their birth places are huge, cold clouds of gas and dust, known as ‘nebulas’. These clouds start to shrink under their own gravity. As the cloud gets smaller, it breaks into clumps. Each clump eventually becomes so hot and dense that nuclear reactions begin. When the temperature reaches 10 million degrees Celsius, the clump becomes a new star. “ – European Space Agency. Universe for kids
We are all star dust.
