Josiah McElheny’s Island Universe informs a conversation with Dr. Christopher Johns-Krull, professor of physics and astronomy, and Joseph Campana, Ph.D, the Alan Dugald McKillop Chair in English. Dr. Johns-Krull will discuss the science behind McElheny’s work. Dr. Campana will consider McElhency’s large scale installation in light of poetic traditions. Following there will be a panel discussion moderated by Ian Cion, exhibition and program manager at the Moody.

Island Universe is a monumental installation of five hanging sculptures inspired by the multiverse scenario of eternal inflation, an extension of the big bang theory.
