Journey to the outer limits of the final frontier
This footage is not from any planetary exploration probe, in fact, it’s not from outer space at all.
It’s from the basement of Hamburg based artist, Nicolas Arnold, a motion effects and VFX artist with an interest in deep space. He uses liquids and chemicals to create the mesmerising effects.
While it’s inspired by outer space, the creation is very much from the imagination of Arnold. His work taps into a childhood obsession with the outer reaches of space.
Arnold grew up in an area with very little light pollution, so he would obsess over the night sky and wonder what was beyond. His work is almost a response to his own question childhood question.
