Stardust by Sergio AlbiacIllustration // Monday, 22 Jul 2013
Sergio Albiac is a visual artist based in Barcelona, Spain, whose process of production involves writing computer programs to generate complex images of beauty and emotion. In his latest artist foray into "generative portraiture," Albiac employs the concept of nucleosynthesis, the cosmic creation of stardust, to compose automated collage portraits that source photographs from The Hubble Space Telescope. The resulting images are not only universally appealling as works of abstracted beauty, but also representative of our place in the cosmos as material beings essentially made of star stuff.
