This work explores the structure of the folding
and unfolding chaos of the universe. When the Hubble Space Telescope peers far
into the outer reaches of the cosmos, it retrieves images of spectacular nebula
clusters swirling into existence, galaxies merging into each other, suns
exploding, black holes colliding and comets whooshing through the vastness of
space. This is superlative chaos at its most magnificent, a kind of galactic
dance. These actions must create unimaginable vibrations, but the vacuum of
space means there is no sound. We see the images only and cannot even imagine
what the sound of millions of stars crashing into each other could be like. To
the human ear and its limited spectrum, it is all silence. The chaos of the
universe is an unbelievable silence to us. This sculpture sought to showcase
this dichotomy by creating dynamic visuals of three nebula clusters frozen at
that exact moment when they are about to collide and merge into each other. The
visuals are observed by us in complete silence and we can only imagine what the
universe might sound like if we could hear it. Astrophysicists are already
working to hear the sounds of the universe - https://goo.gl/yq5kPL ;
This work expresses the complexity of the unfolding cosmos with the simple
technique of folds. The hidden realities of our cosmos are tucked within the
folds of this simplest of geometric techniques. One day, we will understand
