Title: Black hole

Description: A black hole surrounded by high energy particles.

Maker: Carol Hogan

Techniques used: In order to achieve a spontaneous effect, I chose fabric pens to mirror the bright, colourful ring of swirling light, associated with black holes

Inspiration: "At the time of deciding which astronomical image to use for my square, black holes were a topical news feature. They have a phenomenal destructive beauty."
