Cosmic Aesthetic

Artists look to outer space for inspiration in their work

Implications - Rather than pandering to the sci-fi fandom, artists using space-inspired visuals in their work are attempting to get back to the root of what science fiction is all about: a creative re-imagining of the future. By referencing the cosmos in their work, artists are able to tap into people's collective anxieties about the future, and create a surreal counter-narrative that provides both comfort and amazement.
