The final exploration into unknown spaces. This is how I imagine futuristic engineering: The idea of 'living bionical organisms'. These spaceships (navicula), based on giant diatomea, are framed by silicone and were grown in the sea; their propulsion system is working by a silent nuclear fusion... The bionical spaceship heals damages itself, protects and provides the space within with oxygen. We can't help, men will have to leave earth sooner or later. That's a picture that I had in mind for a long time, and I could finally find the right technique for it, and paint it! The idea came when I studied the aesthetics of little things.. Done with chinese ink. What a mess!!! On A3.
