With my textures, I have attempted to parallel the theories of science through the use of primary shapes which feature in the study of the world around us. The lightest shade begins with the primary element - the atom - and the darkest shade represents the night sky and the density of mass.

The studio of Stephen Hawking can be seen as the two floating hollowed out squares on the left, and the one of Charles Darwin is the one on the right, with the glowing rectangular prism separating the two laboratories.
By removing all traces of a landscape apart from the jagged towers, I have attempted to express the vast and never ending space of the universe and also its desolate nature.
The ramp is used here to express the coming together of the two ideas of the scientists - the trees stand as motifs for Darwin's earth-based theories, while the sharp, white light which are next to the laboratory of Hawking are metaphors for his explorations into the less tangible theories on space and light.
