"NGC 3756"

Sculpted by the complex interplay of interstellar winds, radiation pressures, magnetic fields and gravity, NGC 3756’s bright arcs of gas and dark knots of dust mark the visible tip of a dense hydrogen cloud that spans 1,000 light years. Gorged on an abundance of raw materials, NGC 3756 specializes in supergiant construction: a recent survey revealed at least 33 massive stars near to completion. Inspired by the idea of micro/macro, and intergalactic space. This piece is a representation of a star cluster in deep outer-space.
