First still of Black Hole

In 1916, Albert Einstein predicted black holes through his theory of general relativity. That mix of science and imagination can be seen in Marshmallow Laser Feast’s Distortions in Spacetime. These other works are fascinated by these cosmic giants and represent an evolution in computer graphics and VFX.
