    The new work Distortions in Space timethe first chapter in a new body of work titled The Scale of Thingswill turn participants into particle clouds on a giant screen and give them the sense of being squashed, stretched and spaghettified as they are affected by gravitational waves.

    As audience members explore and interact with the environment they will be rewarded with opportunities to see particle jets whipped up, view gravitational lensing, pass through the photon sphere and as they move towards the singularity, things start to get weird…
