Man is a microcosm, or a little world, because he is an extract from all the stars and planets of the whole firmament, from the earth and the elements; and so he is their quintessence.

Beautiful animation by Seattle based Designer/Director Chriss Abbas, using footage from NASA's Cassini Imaging Science System. The strong black and white contrasts, the movement of forms and the tempo of the editing reminded me immediately of the abstract films from german artist and filmmaker Hans Richter, who was one of the founders of dadaism in the the 1920's.
