About the 🔥 Drop

Places humans will never be, sites, we will never see, feelings we will never feel; beyond the Overview Effect, there is the NERO NOVA.

Constant eerie, strange vibes consume whoever floats in between the interstellar gas clouds. If you are taken there, you will be taken over!

This is a collaboration between two multidisciplinary artists who physically exist in different geographical locations but in this experimental artwork, they fuse those realities together to form this hypnotic idea of Nero Nova. As subtle forms become transformed through frantic and repetitive practice, the obsession to be better artists, the viewer is left with a clue to the darkness of our world.

What a beautiful darkness!

This work is based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multi-layered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned - do we really know, what we know? By applying abstraction, the artists try to create works in which the actual event still has to take place or just has ended: moments evocative of atmosphere and suspense that are not part of a narrative thread. The drama unfolds elsewhere while the build-up of tension is frozen to become the memory of an event that will never take place.

About the artists

Zach Murray

A science fantasy digital artist who creates fantasy dreamscapes, digital collages, photo manipulations, glitch art; using and building on known techniques in order to find new combinations. I therefore like to describe my approach as experimental as most of what I do is a result of trial and error. I rarely return to the same project unless the first time brought real enjoyment!


A colorblind digital artist who creates 3D artworks, Digital Paintings and Concept Art around feelings and emotions. Almost all of my artworks are interpretations of what I feel, and sometimes, when I'm lucky; people relate with the same feeling and that hues up my day with all the colors, even the ones I can't see.
