Marzipan Physics, the creation of artist & designer Jennifer Ross, originated as a character:  an experimental physicist at CERN who searches for dark matter and supersymmetry at the Large Hadron Collider; an alien accidentally abandoned on earth as a baby; intergalactic adventurer,  avatar of cosmic glamour and sophistication.

But "the project" evolved  to include a body of outer-space and sub-atomic motifs, patterns and themes. Evoking both the psychedelic past and the retro-future, the imagery is part escapist fantasy, part meditation on space, science, and the relative insignificance of humanity in an infinite and mysterious universe.
