Out of This World
Out of This World is a vibrant study on the marvel and the sublime of what forms and energies exist beyond the galaxy we live in today. With this series, Nicastro explores various forms of space life forms that are consistently expanding the infinite bounds of the universe.
The works invite viewers to be encaptivated by their vibrant colours and shifting forms, while inducing a feeling of comfort or discomfort. Does the realization of knowing how insignificant earth may be make you anxious? Or is it the possibility of life beyond our atmosphere that makes you feel content, even excited, for what our technological advancements may bring us? For Nicastro, it is the spectacle of these forms that provide him ease. Though the works don’t depict real existing planets or nebulas, it is more so the process of the nebular theory that Nicastro wishes to survey. With a mere speak of dirt or dust, the collective energies of gravity can create or destroy life around us.
