Strange Matter @ Cosmosis, Hyde Park Art Center

This work was included in an exhibition titled Cosmosis, on display at the Hyde Park Art Center from May 3 to August 23, 2015. One component of this exhibition was the creation of a very robust website, featuring work samples, writings and interviews with the artists and curator, Steven L. Bridges.


About the Exhibition

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
— Carl Sagan

Cosmosis is an exhibition that investigates how the cosmos and the scientific fields of physics and cosmology continue to inspire artistic production, exerting great influence on our understanding of the universe—and our place therein. After all, scientific developments and breakthroughs inevitably have great cultural relevance and ramifications, often contributing to our sense of identity and role both as individuals and collectively within society. As is often the case: to look outward and beyond is also to look inward.

This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose interest in the cultural significance of the cosmos leads in multiple directions, intersecting with the fields of aesthetics, anthropology, philosophy, and so on, grounded in different art-making strategies and material explorations.
