This piece in particular was inspired by the formation of cloud and dust known as The Monkey Head Nebula or NGC2174. This nebula is a star forming nebula, in which bright new stars conjure in the center, illuminating the surrounding gases, and which particles of interstellar dust are warmed by the star cluster in the center of the nebula This is an abstracted interpretation based on my knowledge of NGC2174, and inspired more specifically from a photo of this nebula in which the surrounding gases were illuminated in green, representing specific wavelengths of infrared light.
