Siamo fatti di elettricità e atomi, siamo la risultanza di uno scontro energetico. Quello che siamo in realtà forse non lo scopriremo mai, ma è bello lasciare un po’ di mistero alle nostre vite e alla nostra essenza.
Tutti gli elementi della tavola periodica sono nati dalla fusione e dalla creazione di stelle.
Noi siamo il risultato incomprensibile di un’aggregazione di molecole e particelle, le stesse che si trovano nell’universo.

Vi lascio con una canzone il cui titolo ha “fornito” quello del mio post. “We are all made of stars” di MOBY
All the elements of the periodic table were born by the fusion and creation of stars. We are the incomprehensible result of an aggregation of molecules and particles, the same that are in the Universe.
Art, fashion and photography are fascinated by infinite space and billions of lights that populate it.
Through the technique of vintage-effect collage, the cosmos become background and part of a love story in the opera “Kundalini” of the artist Eugenia Loli (available here).
The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, always master of the representation of an iconic and irreverent polka dot world, is fascinated by the stars as points of light. In her intallation “Infinity Mirror Rooms“, light refraction is expanded through a continuity of mirrors, which give to the viewer the sensation of entering into infinite space and not in the finite space of a simple room.
Some fashion trend tells about a delicate aesthetics of invisible energies, captured and imprisoned by technology in clothes that emanate their own light or, using more traditional techniques of embroidery and finishing of the fabric, of reflected light in a thousand glows. If not the dress itself, then is the photo shooting that poetically recreates a kaleidoscopic atmosphere as a planetarium.
The human figure in all its complexity and in its details can express this molecular affinity with the cosmos. On the web I found several photos conceived to give strength to dream and let us forget for a moment the force that binds us to the materialism of our body.
I leave you with a song whose title has “supplied“ to my post. “We are all made of stars” by Moby
