Asymmetry of Entropy
An experiential installation and artistic interpretation of entering a blackhole through sculpture, lighting, sound design, and negative space.
An interactive experiential installation reinterpreting the process of entering a black hole aimed to elicit introspective response through complete immersion into the piece. Using an array of modern and primitive materials, each visitor is drawn, one at a time, through the accretion disk, across the event horizon, and into the black hole.
The accretion disk, made of LED lighting and mirrors, envelopes and pulls the visitor through the event horizon, and then thrusts them into the vast and utter darkness of the black hole. Auditory feedback deconstructs and recontextualizes any sound comingView more
This is a free installation located at SITE Gallery in Sawyer Yards. The opening will occur from 8-10 PM on November 13th, and subsequent showings will be in conjunction with Sawyer Yards’ Second Saturday from 12-5 PM until February 13th.

An experimental and interactive reinterpretation of the experience of entering a black hole aimed to elicit introspective response through complete immersion into the piece. An accretion disk made of LED lighting and mirrors envelopes the visitor in simulation of the accretion disk, leading them into the vast and utter darkness of the black hole. Auditory feedback deconstructs and recontextualizes any sound coming from the vistor as an embodiment the destructive forces inside the black hole.
This will be at SITE Gallery Houston at Sawyer Yards with an opening date of November 13, 2020 from 8 to 10 PM. Subsequent showings will coincide with Sawyer Yards' Second Saturdays through February. The dates are as follows:
