Installation piece. Apples representing Newtonian physics, they sit on nine triangular plinths with individual text attributed to each of the apples. Each plaque describes an apparent physical change at the atomic level of the apples structure. This change however would not be noticeable to the naked eye, and so it is impossible to totally trust the labels authenticity. The installation questions contemporary theories in the scientific community - from tachyons which travel faster than the speed of light, to anti-matter and negative energy - the piece exists as a transitory portal between Science-Fiction and Science-Fact. Based on the book Physics of the Impossible, a scientific exploration of the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation and Time Travel (2009) - Penguin Books by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
