Outer Spaces I 2008
The resulting pieces will seek to question the idea of the invisible, bringing to the forefront the limits of perception in order to talk about what we cannot see—what we can perhaps intuit or imagine, but which will always be beyond empirical understanding. By materializing these relationships among “invisible” particles I also want to talk about human relationships and social interactions using water as a connector, for its perceived nature as a whole vital element, but which is fragmented upon closer inspection.
The multiverse (or meta-universe) is the hypothetical set of infinite or finite possible universes (including the Universe we consistently experience) that together comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, and energy as well as the physical laws and constants that describe them. The various universes within the multiverse are sometimes called “parallel universes” or “alternate universes”.
The structure of the multiverse, the nature of each universe within it and the relationships among the various constituent universes, depend on the specific multiverse hypothesis considered. Multiple universes have been hypothesized in cosmology, physics, astronomy, religion, philosophy, transpersonal psychology, and fiction, particularly in science fiction and fantasy. In these contexts, parallel universes are also called “alternate universes”, “quantum universes”, “interpenetrating dimensions”, “parallel dimensions”, “parallel worlds”, “alternate realities”, “alternate timelines”, and “dimensional planes”, among others. The term ‘multiverse’ was coined in 1895 by the American philosopher and psychologist William James in a different context.
