Was awarded with one half to Roger Penrose ”for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity”, the other half jointly to Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez ”for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.
An elegant deep mystique given by black holes that pulls whole galaxies by twisting them into itself where time and space warp then becomes one where the rigid meets the intanglible transient. The eradiation of new matter from black holes expresses a rebirth through a sepulture of something that has been, annihilated and given new life.
“We wanted to capture the feeling and the course of events when a black hole devours other objects, how they twist around the black hole orbit and then fall into the darkness. In our work, we made connections to how time and space as well as life and death take place in space and on earth – that death is followed by an act of mourning for us, while it can be seen as something mysterious and beautiful in space”, says Amanda and Joel.
