Micros & Cosmos trays

For this work I was very interested on the idea of a controlled coincidence. I used this idea as a method when making these trays. I had water on the surface of the glass and I sprinkled glitter, pigments and acrylic colors on top of the water. When the water dries out there was left very organic pattern. I then continued the picture by painting. I would only see the final pattern on the glass when I turn the glass over when everything is dried. The viewer might see on the glass something that is microscopical small or big as universum.
