Why is the hypothesis of the Multiverse so controversial within the science community? One could say, since we can not prove nor disprove there are other universes, using the hypothesis as true could begin boarding on the idea of faith. With this work I cross science and religion. I play on the ego of science, and the incompleteness of faith as the viewer enters into an illusion. Only one "Universe" exists in this installation and as the viewer kneels before it, immersed in an audio mix of religions and technology, realities breakdown. Which is the truth? Is there a truth? And in the dark, will you pray to it either way?
