Universal Parallelism is the result of experimentation with chalcographic engraving techniques in which chemical reactions corrode the plate. The author does not have total control of the entropic process, so these techniques are ideal to represent analogous phenomena of nature. In this way, this project is a metaphor comparing the birth of a star and the progressive corrosion of a copper plate, so the process of engraving is printed to represent sequentially the development of a star.
There are visual analogies between the corrosion of metal and the nuclear activity inside stars, because both phenomena are entropic. Entropy is studied by the Thermodynamic Laws and Chaos Theory which have changed the scientific paradigm. The conclusion of these theories is that we can understand natural transformations, but we can’t control them. This knowledge is a new way of conceiving nature which can be seen in the corrosion of a cooper plate with acid.
