Over het werk

Cosmoselector's collection of geological samples of exoplanets. Each sculpture represents a geophysical formation of a planet outside the solar system.


Sample collected on the planet: "TAU CETI e"

Constellation: CETUS

Ascension: 01h 44m 5s - Declination: -15 ° 56 ’15”

Stellar distance: 11.9 light years.


The planetary surface shows a composition in which only two types of materials appear to be found. One of them, extremely soft and fine, almost like talcum, is molded by the winds, forming immense dunes. The other, dark, very hard, fragmented and cracked, reminiscent of obsidian. The sample has been stabilized for its extraction. The beauty of the whole is magnetic when the dim and diffuse light of its star generates shadow plays that extend thousands of kilometers.

Over de kunstenaar

Cosmoselector (Madrid, 1984) is a young interdisciplinary and eclectic artist whose work represents a journey looking for the beauty trapped within the sedimentary geology that nature draws in the today known to science exoplanets.

 The discovery of the “unexpected” has always been a powerful catalyst for human creation and improvement. Indeed, our worldview has been shaken many times by the encounters with the impossible.

That is why Cosmoselector`s artistic production are  samples, fragments of distant landscapes of alien worlds. Impossible views of something still unobservable but already achievable by human imagination and desire.  

The works that compose this series represent a selection of geological samples collected during an artistic imaginary trip across the last frontier –the last human challenge- where everything is possible: space.

 The artist challenges the observer to act as a space explorer or natural scientist, forcing him to provide a sense and meaning to the pieces he is facing.

 It will be the observer's task to decide which phenomenon produced them.

The observer must ask to himself if whether the object in front of us is the result of nature, the creation of an intelligence, or the result of something way more complicated than that.
