    Nebula is a concept developed with the support of hidrazone.com, a digital arts hub developed at Southampton Institute (now Southampton Solent University), United Kingdom. The original Nebulae series was developed for the inaugural edition of the hidrazone.com journal entitled Randomness. The project began with a simple concept of generating an output by moving multiple pixels one pixel-width at a time. The key development that added ?nebula-like depth? was the adjustment of the opacity of the pixels. This development coincided with the INSAPV call. This moment of serendipity encouraged the further development of the project with reference to the astronomy/art interface.
