Black Hole is a data-driven light and sound sculpture inspired by the theory and the geometry of black holes. The terrifying boundaries of the event horizon, the point of no return, and the unbearable confinement of singularity are marked on the sculpture using an intangible medium, light. Sound translates distant gravitational waves into our humanly detectable domain, allowing us to sense the presence of the black hole. In this article, the artist investigates the inspiration he draws from the philosophical aspect of Einstein’s general relativity theory and black holes and describes the creative process of using the bending of space and time to form a sculpture.
