press release

Berlin-based artist Björn Dahlem creates imaginary models of the cosmos and illustrates abstract principles of astrophysics using discarded materials such as untreated lumber, industrial neon light tubes, dustbusters, or carpet remnants. At turns earnest and wryly humorous, these constructions subvert the viewer's expectations of precise scientific models and question the mythological and narrative qualities of scientific theories as they develop within popular culture.
