And creation began
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
Take a series of extreme close-ups, subject them to extreme heat, glue the remnants to a variety of coloured backgrounds, repeat the whole process again, rephotograph the results and try to make sense of it all in Photoshop. Well, that’s certainly how this creation began! So what is the sense of it? Imagine that the ‘Big Bang.’ the surmised beginning of the universe, was neither big nor was it a bang. Instead it was just one event among many similar ones and neither was it particularly explosive. It was just a sedate pushing out of a new space/time continuum into a much older pre-existing one. In fact, maybe that’s what all black holes are; nascent universes biding their time until the gravitational pressure in the singularity at the centre reaches critical mass. It then pushes out a fresh bubble of space/time into the pre-existing universe, and so on. Each universe therefore has its own particular ‘moment’ of creation, its so-called ‘big bang,’ but the ever repeating cycle never had a beginning and will never have an end. We live in a universe within a universe within a universe…ad infinitum. Beginnings and endings? Who needs them. Enjoy the work!
