The collaborators David Oliva from SP25 Arquitectura and Anna Juncà of the Atelier 4 have created this spectacular lava flow using simple origami, on the occasion of the LLUÈRNIA festival in Catalonia. Over 10,000 sheets of paper were used to make this work, subsequently illuminated from below and made even more realistic through the use of smoke bombs.
The work was called “Origami Lava” which was placed on an abandoned building in the city of Olot, a place surrounded by inactive volcanoes. Take a look at our gallery.
Space is mysterious and frightening territory, we observe from Earth phenomena that most of the time, unless you are an astronomer or very passionate, cannot be fully explained. Remaining are the fascination of seeing them from afar, observing celestial bodies, night skies and everything that inspires fantastic tales and makes us imagine the presence of other worlds light years away from us. Some phenomena require patience because they are very slow, others are difficult to witness because they are extemporaneous, all of which makes photographing astronomical phenomena a very difficult task, and each year the best shots are awarded at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year.
3,000 photos entered in 2022 by photographers from 67 countries, including the winning one by photographer GeraldRhemann, who managed to capture a rare event that made many look up to the sky last December. It was Christmas Day when comet Leonard crossed the sky over Tivoli, Namibia. Rhemann managed to capture the moment before the celestial body was blown away by the solar wind, and the energy-charged shot earned first place in the contest. For the next 12 months the shot will be on display in London, at the National Maritime Museum, along with the other entries and divided into thematic categories (galaxies, sun, moon, landscapes…).
