“We are all interconnected through the fabric of time, the entanglement of space, and the molecular structure of matter and particles that weave and shape our ‘Mulitverse’. I am investigating how we could visualise and pictorially translate that cosmological fabric or ‘Multiverse’ through drawings, natural matter and coil woven objects, to form a multilayered visual landscape that poetically asks us to look down at the infinitesimal details of nature, and feel the beauty and poetry that quietly surrounds us ‘every –when’.” – Michele Morcos
