Where Science Meets Art

In the general theory of relativity, a gravitational field is (mathematically) described by spacetime curvature, or, as physicists call it, the “metric.” According to this concept, the metric describes a kind of dynamic, continuous, and complete fabric affected by the association between spacetime distortion and the sources of energy and matter within it.

Yoav Brener attempts to convey the visual perception of the “metric,” the four-dimensional fabric of the universe, through large-scale two-dimensional paintings. The combination of dimensions and orders of magnitude undergo a “visual encryption” to colors and shapes. The events in his “metric” are proffered to the viewers’ thoughts and imagination.
