Bending Light #84
While scientists on Earth may have rejected the feasibility of the idea of creating wormholes to travel through time and for inter-universe exploration, unfortunately nobody told the inhabitants of our neighbouring Universe. Over the last few 'earth centuries' they have been quietly 'burrowing' into our Universe through the boundary layer which has been keeping us apart.
At first there were just a few alien craft which survived the trip, but now the 'traffic' has increased to such a level that the “Inter Galactic Alliance” has decided to act. A massive “Migration and External Security Station” (MESS) is under construction adjacent to to the time tunnel's exit at the outer limits of our Universe. This fine MESS will provide a contained area where 'immigrant travellers' will be “invited to submit their applications” while their crafts are 'long-stay parked' in a secure retaining area.
In the meanwhile work is well under way (Planning Stage 2) to build a 'reverse tunnel' through which the 'travellers' could be returned home. If the influx of 'visitors' continues at the current rate then there is general agreement for the creation of a larger MESS until the whole situation is fully resolved. Time will tell.
For new viewers: these 'Refractographs' are analogue images of the
refraction patterns of a beam of light passing through various
transparent objects (in this case a piece of textured glassware). The
image is captured directly on to 35mm film, no camera lens is used,
the transparent object replaces the lens. Colour, in this case, has
been added by positioning coloured filters in the optical beam. This
is an analogue image and has not been computer generated or colour
treated. The colours you see are a faithful reproduction of those
captured on film.
There is no movement of lights - a single static white light source is used. There is also no camera movement - the image is captured in-camera with a single exposure
