THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING

-----

A project about the world of science and the limits of the known.

There is no well-defined limit between science and science fiction; imagination is maybe the most important part of science. The universe seems to be far more exciting than we ever have imagined. My work is a celebration to our fantasy and our eternal search for knowledge.

In my research I went to Cern, a laboratory for particle physics in the Swiss Alps. The media back then accused them to endanger the world by creating black holes in their new accelerator. However if the machine creates black holes they are minuscule and exist just fraction of a second - but it would indicate that we have a fifth dimension less than one millimetre away. As if we were two-dimensional figures in a flat, illustrated world without knowing about the third dimension above the surface of the paper.

This project was my MA project at Storytelling, Konstfack. It was selected for the exhibition Talant 2009 in Eindhoven.
