A rift, a scar, a slash, a way through…
Digital video with sound.
Premiered at the 2017 Venice Biennale in INTUITION at the Palazzo Fortuny museum.
The images originate using the Louvre’s most highly-powered microscope, referencing meteoric material that composes the crown of an ancient demonic statue (Afghanistan, 3,000 BC) from the museum’s collection. The sound is the hum of the universe from the hour of the gravitational wave detection, and the wave slipping through, traveling across 1.4 billion years. The detection was the basis for the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
