Astrophysicists have identified over 4,000 exoplanets using deep space telescopes to monitor variations in the levels and frequency of light emitted by the stars they orbit. This series photographs details and patterns within my immediate environment, reflecting the way that the particles and patterns that make up the universe are echoed between the smallest and largest scales, to create images of what these planets may look like if we were able to explore them in the same way that the Voyager craft were able to capture images of the outer planets in our Solar System.
