Huge, burning masses in space are connected to the fragile human body. We are so much more connected with the universe than we commonly believe ourselves to be. Our own sun, a star unto itself, gives us the warmth and energy we need to survive and we carry that same energy through our veins. By conceptually showing how we are just as unique as the brightest stars, thousands of light years away, I use a destructive method on the photographic prints themselves, to allow light to shine through them. Once the images are photographed a second time, the starry patterns and the original photos become one and bind together the human with their celestial counterpart.
