Pampling’s DNA Astronaut

DNA Astronaut by Tobiasfonseca mixes the micro with the macro for a surreal space scene built around a tiny bit of biology. While DNA strands are typically depicted as a series of lines, here they’re a robust ecosystem of planets, stars, and even the odd comet. Differences in the size, shape, and tone of these celestial elements keep the eye moving around the piece, while some dimension is implied by color coding the twirling exterior strands. There’s even a story suggested by the small astronaut, an explorer whose body language registers his shock at stumbling upon this scene. Finally, a smattering of stars in the distance hints at even more wonders somewhere out there in the great unknown.
