Description

Bringing artist Josiah McElheny’s "Island Universe" to the Cantor is a rare opportunity to examine both cutting-edge art and physics. The monumental installation of five hanging chandeliers is a visual response to recent theories of the multiverse, an elaboration of the Big Bang theory. The installation is both visually stunning and carefully constructed according to measurements that map the history of time.
