Extreme closeups of spray paint caps used for a cosmic mural

μcapsmic zooms in on the found at of spray paint caps used to paint a mural of the Star Child from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Used and naturally clogged in the most random ways possible, these spray paint caps were once indistinguishable from one another to the human eye and untouched by the human hand in the making. Now, each of them is considered to be small-scale models of the Universe that they created it. The first part showed here is a selection of six clogged spray paint caps that were used to create the stellar mural "StarChild (Genesis)".

  3. It is probably wrong of me, but I wonder if Pollock survived the car crash long enough to take in his surroundings, and if he processed the aftermath as art?
