Dark Energy @ 1805 Gallery - 06/28/2017 1805 Gallery is pleased to announce that Melissa Walter’s residency is extended through July 9, 2017.  Her residency project Dark Energy is complete and available to view daily. Walter will host a viewing reception on Wednesday, June 28th from 7-9PM with an informal talk at 8PM. Mellissa Walter Statement : Dark Energy String Installation 2017 Since the big bang, our Universe has been expanding at an accelerating rate. However, based on our knowledge of gravity, we would have expected that expansion to be slowing down and to begin to see signs that it will contract. What is causing this unexpected mass expansion? It is a mysterious force scientists have labeled “Dark Energy” and it makes up about 68% of our Universe. More is unknown than known about dark energy but there are four possibilities that are being explored—it’s a property of physical space; the cause is a result of temporary particles; it is a new kind of dynamical energy fluid or field; or Einstein’s theory of gravity is simply incorrect. It is in my own exploration of the subject that I sought to breakdown this weighty concept into a simple visual. Each shape connects to these four theories where they each start at a singular point (the big bang) and then expand outward toward the viewer (accelerating expansion). Each shape (or theory representation) begins and ends in unique places, which speaks to the nature of scientific exploration. Depending on the viewer’s orientation, they overlap and blend into new shapes, which touches upon the malleableness of the scientific method resulting in the often surprising discoveries about the mysteries of the beyond. In the end, if dark energy persists, we will be a lone galaxy sailing through the vastness of space, where our strongest telescopes will no longer be able to detect our nearest neighbors. Perhaps our continued research into dark energy will help us to understand our unavoidable solitary confinement.[more]
