" (...)I dived down into the ocean of forms to find the pearl of formless (...) and now I am eager to die into the deathless (...) /Rabindranath Tagore/

In our daily perception we live in a four-dimensional realm. However our relationship with the reality might be much more subtle than what our senses offer us to believe. In the field of superstring theory, the M-theory assumes the existence of additional dimensions hidden from our limited perception, as well as their fluctuation and interconnectivity. What does it mean for us to live in a multidimensional universe with our own bodies hiding manifold worlds?

The project was inspired by a protein molecule (called the basic brick of life) which convolute structure, on one hand-side, reminded me of Calabi-Yau manifolds - mysterious geometric formations in which successive dimensions of our world are “curled up” on the subatomic scale. On the other hand-side, whilst exposed to X-rays, this structure reveals the arrangement of atoms that might be easily mistaken for a map of the starry Sky.

The installation bridges micro and macro scales, scientific imagery with daily recordings and poetry, translating scientific ideas into the area of art as a source of personal and collective consciousness and invite intuitive examination of the unfathomable nature of our reality.
