The British Library is home to one of the largest collections of recorded knowledge in the world. It is a mirror to our pursuit of understanding ourselves and our environment.Throughout our history, we have developed methods of recording survival techniques through to the unravelling and understanding our universe.With the inevitable fate of our planet, all of this knowledge and progress will one day disintegrate and cease to exist in any form. My question is; is this a cyclical event that has happened an infinite amount of times before, and will it happen an infinite amount of times in the future?
This was a collaboration between Oxford MRC Neuropharmocology lab and myself.
I used epifluorescent microscopic photographs of a rat brain as a starting point, to provide an optical illusion of a mythical location in space. Not only are we seeing space when we look to the skies, but we are also seeing our own progress.
