Final project for A399.

In tenebrism, light defies our conventional understanding of its physics. The artist paints only choice elements of his subjects with light, and it is not even traditional illumination, but a disembodied source that hides out of view. There are, however, places in reality where this sort of unreal vision can occur--the most alien of places, the depths. Against the deep black of outer space, or far below the ocean's surface where sunlight fails, we get this kind of lighting. And it is in such a location that I have chosen to set my little diorama of the birth, life, and death of an enigmatic form that I've simply been calling "the nodule." The piece passes in a series of brief epochs, each with its own accompanying fauna. Due to the extreme dimness it is best viewed in a completely dark room.
