Space Book

We get so wrapped up in our day to day lives that we often forget that we are part of something so much greater: the universe. I created this project to give people an opportunity to take a moment to think about what we are and why we're here and to put some perspective into all the little things we get so worked up and stressed about in our daily lives. I find space incredibly inspiring because thinking about its vastness and it's beauty blows my mind and reminds me that my problems here on earth are so minuscule when put into proportion with our place in the universe. It also makes me appreciate just being alive and being part of something so incredible. I have made my zine by taking photos just from my camera roll of my everyday life and collaging in space scenes. It represents how I think we should spare a thought for the universe whilst going about our daily routines, just to give us that sense of perspective. I also created a 'little book of space' which is full of quotes about the universe to help achieve that sense of open mindness. It is hung around a bottle full of glitter and liquids and all sorts of things which when shaken looks almost as mesmerising as the stars themselves.
