Fabric of the universe
Art and science join forces to imagine the unknown.
Chicagoland artist and sculptor Julie Rotblatt Amrany and UChicago professor of physics Emil Martinec have teamed up to imagine and visualize the Inner Life of Black Holes. Amrany wanted to engulf the viewer in an environment—to feel, see, and hear what it might be like to travel through a black hole. She spent months working with Martinec, who specializes in string theory, to integrate what is known and what is theorized into an installation using sculpture, fabric, painting, interactive light, projection, and sound. Amrany and Martinec hope to secure a venue and funding to create the piece as a permanent or semipermanent exhibit.
