A bright white light? Eternal darkness?
It is my conviction that after our death our spirit, our soul, travels to its origin somewhere in the universe. Once arrived, our energy is reunited with the energy from which everything around us once originated.
As we know from the beautiful photographs taken by the Hubble telescope, the energy visible to us in the universe consists of light from countless stars. This light illuminates enormous gas nebulae in many fascinating colors. This is how I like to see myself. As a very small colored particle of dust that, after leaving this physical existence, returns to such an infinitely large, multicolored cloud of gas and dust.
The way there is an enchanting journey through space. Alternating between silent darkness and clouds full of light, color and tranquilizing sounds. After that long, fascinating journey, we arrive at our designated spot in that infinite space.
In the project Nebulae I wanted to visualize that journey. That is how a series of photographic art came into being, made by transforming nine abstract realistic photographs of sunsets over the North Sea along the coast of the Thy region, North Jutland, Denmark.
