“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” — Carl Sagan
I love this piece quite a bit. From the dark purples — which are some of my favourite colours, so mystical and magical! — to the smokey textures, planet-shaped things and wibbly-wobbly patterns (more of these to come!). I dunno about you, but when I look up to the stars, I somehow feel as if I’m looking into myself. I know that’s pretentious as hell, but it’s true. Clichés are called clichés because they’re overused, not because they’re untrue. I love all things spacey — from actual science to art (whether it’s pictures, pieces of music, or films/T.V. shows, books — I love it all!). The name of course comes from a play on the phrases ‘inner thoughts’/’inner self’ and ‘outer space’.
“We are stardust / Billion year old carbon.” — Joni Mitchell, Woodstock (from the LP Ladies of the Canyon, 1970)
