Invited to put on an exhibition with alldaybreakfast in their ‘new’ space in The Galleries at Broadmead, Bristol, Dark Matter was the outcome.

The ways we humans try to interpret the universe in which we find ourselves could be seen as a spectrum – like light – from red to violet; from myth to modern science. But the electromagnetic spectrum is much larger that our senses can perceive. What may lie beyond our ability to comprehend?

A large part of the mass of the universe cannot be perceived directly; its existence is inferred from its effect on visible matter. This mysterious stuff has been called dark matter.

Towers three high command the space people wander amongst them, as in a grove. A slightly uncanny grove, the people report feeling watched, born down upon, that the towers moved in on them just beyond their fields of sight. People were unexpectedly moved.

The black towers lean and tip, their grasp on coherent form is fleeting; like ours.
