Grasp

Grasp is a series of installations touching on the information within the universe which can stimulate the mathematical sublime. First theorised by Immanuel Kant, the mathematical sublime is when we translate something's immense size or quantity visually into numbers.

These numbers can occasionally reach so high that it becomes almost infinite. For example, you could fit just over a million earths within our own sun. The sun as well compared to some of the other 100 billion stars within our galaxy is tiny in comparison. 

The artwork, once read, is created within the audiences head as they process the information. The reaction will depend on how aware the viewer is on the immense size of the universe. However, for somebody with little to no knowledge of the universe, it restores perspective on just how small we are compared to some of the largest elements within nature.
