Grasp is an installation artwork that tackles the task of trying to break down information relating to the cosmos. Taking inspiration from Immanuel Kant’s mathematical sublime, the artworks incorporate the vast distances and processes of the universe and condense them down into small sentences and quotes which in turn are easy to digest. Collapsing down visuals into numbers. Occasionally these numbers can reach almost infinite.
The artwork interrupts the day to day life or the casual stroll around the gallery with the introduction of a chalkboard to this process. Halting the viewer from their thoughts for a moment to transport them thousands of miles above their heads. The viewer is free to react to them in whatever way they feel. The artwork strives to restore perspective on how small in comparison we are as a species on our little pebble in the vast universe.
