Art direction and illustration for a Quanta Magazine article by Thomas Lewton: What Drives Galaxies? The Milky Way’s Black Hole May Be the Key.
I designed this steampunk / aetherpunk / magitech contraption to hold a miniature galaxy with a central black hole. The gears are driven by the black hole and rotate the galaxy — or is it the other way around?
