Nebula is a hallucinogenically immersive spectacle: a complex, long-form audiovisual composition, which pays playful homage to science fiction fantasies. Captured using stop-motion photography, objects made of glass, glitter and tulle, are nestled within a kaleidoscope of computer-generated imagery. By creating illusions of distant galaxies out of craft materials they highlight the imagination’s power to transform the banal into the infinite.
