Our Place in Space — The Mirrored Universe
In the installation The Mirrored Universe artists Margit Busch and Solmaz Farhang construct a scenario in which a person has disappeared in a completely inexplicable way. Only a mysterious room, a small strange laboratory filled with strange equipment, was left behind. The only indication of what could have happened are measurements of unusual disturbances of electromagnetic waves in the centre of Vienna. The installation invites visitors to engage in the fictional story of this person, who apparently worked on nothing less than a reconstruction of the Universe: The investigators have recovered some of the instruments in the abandoned laboratory and are now trying to make sense of what they found. The results of these speculations are on display.
The installation was created for the Hubble travelling exhibition Our Place in Space in Vienna.Credit:
