Production studio PostPanic and director Mischa Rozema crafted this gorgeous bit of artificial space porn, Stardust, in memory of graphic designer Arjan Groot, who passed away in 2011. It envisions the journey of Voyager 1 as it moves ever farther from our sun and continues well beyond the lifespan of humanity.
Rozema admits that he has created an artistic, rather than scientific interpretation of our universe, focuses mainly on placing the camera in different locations to get a different visual perspective than is usually provided in scientific and science fictional portrayals of space:
From a creative standpoint, Rozema wanted to explore our preconceived perceptions of how the universe appears which are fed to us by existing imagery from sources such NASA or even sci-fi films. By creating a generated universe, Rozema was able to take his own 'camera' to other angles and places within the cosmos.
Objects and experiences we are visually familiar with are looked at from a different point of view. For example, standing on the surface of the sun looking upwards or witnessing the death and birth of a star - not at all scientifically correct but instead a purely artistic interpretation of such events.
