A Theory of Everything

Jay Constantine's avatar Jay Constantine

In my recent work I create an imaginary space where scale can be manipulated and the sense of time can be compressed. By juxtaposing the world of the very large (macrocosm) and the world of the very small (microcosm) I can create analogies between celestial forms and microorganisms. By presenting cosmological events from the distant past with fully evolved humans from our own time, I can pretend to view the universe sub specie aeternitatis (from the perspective of eternity). In this way, past, present, and future can be condensed into a magical pictorial setting.
