The Dark Universe
The Dark Universe, mixed-media installation: scented jesmonite twisted decagonal prisms, coal, machine embroidered polar fleece, berry jellies, scented smoke, soundtrack. Scent of the Universe produced with Omega Ingredients. 5 billion years of solitude, soundtrack composed by Eugene Feygelson, dimensions variable. Accompanied by narrative, Bulletin from the Dark Universe.
Inspired by cosmological theories about the end of the Universe, The Dark Universe is based on ‘The Big Rip’, a theory that predicts that all matter, from stars and galaxies, atoms and subatomic particles to space-time itself will eventually be torn apart by the accelerated expansion of the universe. The floor based work acts as a portal into a world that combines elements of scientific cosmology, medieval medicine, psychology and art history.
