The Fullness of Emptiness, 2001
This multimedia installation explores the birth and the death of the universe, by giving life to cosmic rays. These rays, caused by the birth and death of a star or the explosion of a supernova, regularly reach the atmosphere and the Earth, given that nearly 200 cosmic rays pass through our bodies each second.
It is this physical relationship to the cosmos that The Fullness of Emptiness reveals, and makes visible, using a device made up of sensors connected to hundreds of colored diodes, which retrace the trajectories.
