Creative Concept:
The universe is infinite!
Just in a single drop of seawater microscopic creatures abound.
A man can be very small or very big, depending on the perspective.
Everyone has his/her own value, once they found their balance point!

In the world of geometry I see an infinite universe, which evolved from a point to a line, a plane and a cube.

Combining the basic geometric elements plus time, rhythm, patterns, sizes, angles and hues, I create unlimited images of the big bang.
