Conceptual Installations

TAO: the largest installation ever done, or that ever can be done. “On April 24, 2014, I claimed the entire known, unknown, and unknowable Universe as my personal, conceptual artwork.” ~ Metrov

“Tao” will be an installation piece representing the entire known and unknown universe including all multi-dimensional probabilities and parallel universes, as well as everything else that does not exist. It will consist of twelve, 20,000 gallon, glass tanks suspended from a ceiling. Each tank will be filled to capacity with a combination of dark matter and dark energy which will represent 95% of the universe. The actual glass and metal construction of the tanks will make up the final 5% completing the 100% representation of Tao, admittedly an impossibility. The totality of twelve tanks will represent String Theory’s eleven known dimensions of reality, including an extra dimension to symbolize the ostensibly infinite dimensions yet to be discovered.

The installation will also include twelve, large format, museum quality photographs in plummeting shades of gray, ranging from pure black to pure white representing what we know and what we can never know. Conceptually, the project will be the largest installation ever done, or that ever can be done.  © Metrov 2014
