Space Debris

Kubrick collage on cardboard 2020


The illustration of the first impression concerning Kubrick. The inspiration consists of the last scenes from 2001: Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick. The film, which was released in 1968, was the foretaste of landing on the Moon. The work is the blend of a few worlds: a cosmic child motive, classical architecture and cosmic space referring to the last takes of the Odyssey. Kubrick was the master of introducing some motives, which together with his attitude towards establishing the rapport with his audience is the inspiration of the whole Space Debris cycle.
