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 third installation is currently displayed as a long-term exhibition at Adler Planetarium in Chicago (see image below). For more information on our ideas, exhibitions, and publications, please see our website,
