Accretion (2016) is inspired by the extremely violent processes that characterize the universe as well as by its harmonious and peaceful appearance from a distance— from boiling fusion processes inside the core of a star to swirling debris of planetary formation at the outskirts of our solar system. Its title, 'Accretion', refers to the gravity-induced formation of stars and planetary systems that is thought to take place in clouds of molecular gas, known as accretion discs.
The video is in three parts: I. Disc - II. Neutron Star - III. Kuiper Belt—the titles of these parts speaking for themselves. The first part ‘Disc’ is separated from the second part ‘Neutron Star’ by a short break whereas the second part merges seamlessly with the third part, ‘Kuiper Belt’.
