Print 1418


Cosmic Latte 1/2 1418

In responding to the themes discussed at the Allenheads Contemporary Arts Open Door residency I have produced an initial run of collagraph prints. At some point, the interesting fact emerged that if you combined all the light wavelengths in the Universe the resultant colour could be described as ‘cosmic latte’ (roughly the colour in the centre of the print). I have brought this observation together with another well regarded theory (J-P Luminet et al. 2003 Nature 425 593) that states that the shape of the Universe is a dodecahedron, one of the Platonic solids. Hence the coffee coloured developmental net of the twelve sided polygon.
