Dark Star by Jonathan Anderson is Like an Imploding Black Hole

The Dark Star sculpture is at once breathtaking and ominous. The size and scale of the artwork speaks to the former while the blackness lends itself to the latter. Stars are typically portrayed as illuminated and hopeful, here the Dark Star sculpture is more like a void or an imploding black hole. Of course, it is still an awesome sight.

Created by Jonathan Anderson, an artist based in the United Kingdom, the Dark Star sculpture is an impressive artistic feat for more reasons than one. First of all, it is a whopping 19 feet tall. Secondly, it was entirely made with fibreglass and then coated with coal dust. It is the final material that gives the Dark Star sculpture its black soul.
