THEATRE, INSTALLATIONS, VISUAL ART AND PURPOSELESS CONTRAPTIONS
MicrocosmosA stereo microscope with a gravitational simulation of star systems inside. With the controlpanel the values of the most important cosmological constants can be changed.
By varying the values of the cosmological constants you find out how small the margins are and how easily a star system cam collapse or explode had the universe been only a tiny bit different. Using a joystick you can zoom in on your star system or fly around it as if you were flying a spaceship.
