An experimental and interactive reinterpretation of the experience of entering a black hole aimed to elicit introspective response through complete immersion into the piece. An accretion disk made of LED lighting and mirrors envelopes the visitor in simulation of the accretion disk, leading them into the vast and utter darkness of the black hole. Auditory feedback deconstructs and recontextualizes any sound coming from the vistor as an embodiment the destructive forces inside the black hole.
This project is funded through a Support for Artists and Creative Individuals grant from the Houston Arts Alliance in association with the Houston Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs.
