Text by Martin Wen-Yu Lo on Dark Matter / Energy
Composition of the Universe takes the current dominant model of the universe (74% dark energy, 22% dark matter and 4% ordinary matter) and visualizes alternative models to represent the same figures.
The models represent the same breakdown, but depending on the use of different shapes new yet equally complete universes are brought into being.
Visitors, especially children, are welcome to play with the wooden forms, the artist is referencing a human compulsion to explain, quantify and record our environment.
