Contraption built in order to see the distortion effect with the lights off
This work was inspired by a multitude of cosmological concepts, a few being parallel universes, alternate dimensions, the warping of spacetime and black holes. The universe consists of unexplainable phenomena that is difficult to perceive with the naked eye, but with this interactive work, the viewer is able to observe my interpretation of the warping of space and how they can affect the universe simply with their presence. Provided the title, the viewer is encouraged to engage with the universe and distort the shape as they please. Photographs are then taken of the distortions from above.
