If you could witness the creation of the universe, what might it be like?
Plenum is a real-time, computer-generated light projection inspired by both scientific and religious accounts of how our world came into being and how the cosmos maintains life and consciousness.
Plenum is underpinned by a perfect grid of dots which transforms into a pulsating and swaying collection of particles, popping in and out of existence. It starts by rapidly expanding from a point and plays out an artistic interpretation of the ways the universe could have been formed. As the particles begin to move they impact on the dots around them in what appears to be a chain reaction, calling into question whether we are all held in balance by our relationships to each other and the atmosphere around us. The projection runs a 15-minute sequence from a frozen state of absolute order through to a state of complete chaos. In each sequence a subtly different cosmos is generated by the computer code.
The installation has been created by artist Simeon Nelson with a live soundtrack by Nick Rothwell and Rob Godman. It was inspired by the artist’s conversations with astrophysicist and theologian Rev Professor David Wilkinson.
