Artist Dayna Thacker is interested in the extreme interconnection of everything that exists in our world. From the very large to the infinitely small, she believes that everything ties together in a balanced system of existence. Her exploration of these relationships is evident in her collage project, entitled Theories of Everything.
Using elements of geometry, symmetry, and repetition, Thacker creates a visual language featuring simple and elegant compositions that are layered together with hand-cut lines and shapes. In each piece, the colors and textures blend together in balanced and intertwined landscapes.
For the first time ever, we have a complete picture of the planet Mercury. Scientists used thousands of images captured over a period of years to piece together this mesmerizing 360 degree view of the planet.
