Gravity is a fundamental force for our existence. Yet its very essence remains a mystery.
Ripples in the fabric of space and time –gravitational waves – were first detected in 2015.
They arise from the collision of extraordinarily large objects such as black holes and neutron
stars. These collisions generate heavy elements such as gold, platinum, and lead.
Many astrophysicists believe that gravitational waves could open doors to a deeper
understanding of our universe, even possibly its very origin.
In this body of work, the artists explore the force of gravity artistically. This mixed media
presentation aims to engage viewers visually and physically in the experience. These works are imaginative representations, however, each of the works was made using gravitational force directly and some can be activated by it.
