cosmic soap bubbles (God takes a bath)

Prev Next

God takes a bath and you are here - on the edge of a cosmic soap bubble. Bubbles turn out to be a pretty good model for the clumpiness of matter -- lots of stuff along the edges and not much else in between.

    Sublime.
    It's like you've layered pattern after pattern onto this and they all agree perfectly. The square edges on the bubbles are blowing my mind too.
    Great little hinds of colour and the sharp white edges are incredible.
