Known for his amazing collage-like artwork, Sergio Albiac introduces the Stardust portraits as his newest experimentation in visual artistry.

Exploring the idea of generative portraits with his previous projects where he created images using random newspaper clippings, Sergio Albiac's Starudst sees the artist using the Hubble Space Telescope as its main source of creativity. Sourcing images collected from the Hubble Space Telescope and combining them with user-submitted images, the artist has created a series of abstract and brilliant portraits with the help of custom software technologies. The most amazing part about the project is that any can get involved - simply submit an image and see what comes out.

Filled with stars, galaxies, cosmic matter, and maybe even a few planets, the Stardust portraits are a gorgeous synthesis of life on Earth and the universe as a whole.
