Cosmic Surgery

I've loved Alma Haser's work since I first saw some hanging in my brother's flat years ago. Her Cosmic Surgery project takes photographic portraits and transforms them through a kaleidoscopic lens using Origami. Last year she worked with Emily Macaulay (The Beam/Reverse Engineering) at Stanley James Press to create a limited edition pop-up book, which sold out in a couple of days. The pair now want to produce a bigger run and have just launched a Kickstarter to fund the manufacturing. Also involved is space history writer Piers Bizony who has written text for the book. Its a wonderful project and appeals to my love of all things cosmic. I was more than happy to supply a piece of cosmic ambience for the video below. There is even an online Cosmic Surgery experience created by Josh Emerson.
