A.L.M.A. by Mar Martín

Mar Martín was born in 1984 in Granada, Spain. She studied Fine Arts in Granada and Munich. After that she moved to Madrid to attained a master’s degree in photography, concept and creation. Since 2009 she has been living and developing her own projects between Spain and Berlin.

In the end of 2013, a high resolution image of the coldest place we know in the Universe was captured by the most powerful set of telescopes in the world: Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the Atacama Desert.

The importance of this discovery lies mainly in determining what happens with the stars once they die, because it will happen the same to the Sun. Now we know how cold our Solar System and the Universe may be in the future. Based on this information I created: A.L.M.A., a mental place, where reality and fantasy could exist.
