Cosmoscope is a sculpture by Simeon Nelson that captures the scales of the cosmos. Simeon worked with a team of scientists, including myself, and sound and software artists Rob Goodman and Nick Rothwell, to create an amazing compaction of the scales of the universe. Simeon succeeded in compressing the factor of 100 million-billion-billion-billion in size between the cosmic horizon and molecular materials into a complicex yet simple intertwined, pulsating metal lattice.
Here’s the link to the Durham Lumiere 2017 … you can read more about Cosmoscope here on Simeon’s website.
After a successful run at the Durham Lumiere, its heading down to London for the Lumiere that starts next weekend (18-21 Jan 2018). Here I am interviewed by Simon Ings from the New Scientist, trying to explain the origin of order in the cosmos. The video will be out soon.
