The work is based on the notion of how we see this world in relation to time. I recently discovered that the human eye can see a set number of megapixels in one view point of 120 degrees. I used an image from NASA’s Ultra Deep Field (HUDF) project to pinpoint an object of dim light that's 800 million light years after the Big Bang. The picture is built up of 576 origami boxes, each one individually coloured. The intention is to visualise a moment in time that does not exist anymore. The image we see is a world of creation, a sublime mathematical anomaly that can only exist within our own perceived visual imagination.
