As many of us do, I often wonder what or who created the universe. I imagine the power needed to make something out of nothing. This project was born from my curiosity in the origins of existence and the role we play individually and collectively in creating it. Using cameraless techniques, I create a variety of collodion plates on metal, glass, and clear acrylic that reflect the creation of the cosmos. I take hold of the power of creation to conceive of my own cosmic universes. This process enables me to act as a co-creator to the forces that brought everything into existence. The hum of creation and the bitterness of space ending is realized in the making of these cosmotypes. I set my gaze on the expanse of space, marveling at the vibratory dance of light and darkness.
