Until We Ride the Cosmic Spiral

What you see here started as a tablescrap of a spiral featuring a technique I learned from The Rack by Bryce McGlone. I wanted to incorporate it in a sci-fi scene based off the concept of the cosmic spiral from my previous creations. Having built the rectangular light gray generator of the spiral, I had to set it diagonally on a rectangular base for more visual interest, complemented by the parallel direction of the dark blue tiles. I could’ve made a non-rectangular base, but that would’ve distracted from the sterile lab atmosphere.
