Over the last four years, artist (and MacArthur Fellow) Josiah McElheny and Ohio State astronomer David Weinberg have collaborated on the design of four cosmologically inspired sculptures.

Their work together began with An End to Modernity, a memorable sculpture produced when McElheny was a Wexner Center Residency Award artist and exhibited here in 2005, and concluding with a five-piece installation titled Island Universe (2008). In this joint lecture, they'll describe the history of their collaboration and the scientific and philosophical ideas behind these extraordinary art works, which have been exhibited across the United States and Europe. The presentation concludes with the Columbus premiere of McElheny's recent film, also titled Island Universe (19 mins., Super 16mm film transferred to high definition video).
