I'd play the "what is it?" game, but I think I processed the photo too much for anyone to get it. I think it looks like some sort of primordial soup, with lots of little organisms swimming around and combining into a cool spirally type of thing. Very scientific, I know.
It's actually a macro photo of a copper mesh scouring pad. I shined a small flashlight on it and used spot metering to get the focused lighting. Once I had the image, I used the find edges filter to bring out the... edges! Then i inverted it and played with hue/saturation and curves to get it how I wanted.
