Gold and metallurgy is an important theme in Dijon's artwork. The gold we find on earth is formed in the collision of neutron stars, which came to the earth from meteorites. This piece attempt to reflect this shattered and explosive creation, but also try to connect it to the delicacy of life, humanity and nature.

Dijon Hierlehy - "Rigel" (2014) form a part of the ongoing series B²FH that looks into the ultimate dichotomy between the macrocosmic and microcosmic worlds. The lightboxes you see displayed here use imagery from dendrite and peltate wood patterning juxtaposing this with ideas derived from galaxies and star clusters.

B²FH takes its name from a famous 1957 astronomy research paper which first explored the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis, that all chemical elements (except hydrogen and helium) are created within stars like our sun.
