The Fabric of the Universe is an arts and science collaboration that I have undertaken together with textile specialist Isaac Facio from the Art Institute of Chicago. We aim to go beyond the sheer visualization of simulation data, and try to explore new ways to connect the shapes of dark matter with unconventional materials such as three-dimensional woven textiles.

Our projects include 3D printing and weaving, and we have recently completed the first incarnation of a large-scale textile installation based on the cosmic web of dark matter. For more information on our ideas, exhibitions, and publications, please see our website, fabricoftheuniverse.org.
