Cosmic Alignment

Mauricio Alejo, 2012

In a continuation of his fine art photographic exploration of physical forces, Mauricio Alejo’s “Cosmic Alignment” involves the suspension and progression of balls of different sizes, drawing parallels between inner and outer spaces. Mauricio’s intent was to relate these ordinary, unheroic sports objects located in a private, domestic setting to those unfathomably large planets revolving around our vast universe. The balls even mimic their heavenly counterparts – if you look closely, a double eclipse is incorporated in the soccer ball’s reflection of the volleyball next to it. (
