Black holes

Black holes are areas of space-time with gravitational attraction so great that even objects travelling at the speed of light, including quanta of light itself, cannot leave them.

 

The border of such a space is called the event horizon. In the elementary case of a spherically symmetric black hole it represents a sphere with the Schwarzschild radius, which is considered as a characteristic size of a black hole.

 

At first sight it seems that a black hole is a blind alley for art. It seems that an artist cannot work in such overwhelming, suffocating gravity. But thanks to the achievements of modern science, this is fortunately not the case. A brightly glowing disc of red-hot gas can appear around black holes. At the poles of this disc may sometimes appear jets – bright, luminous fountains of particles, similar to rays of light. And the artist can work with these jets, changing their shape. We can use a black hole as a lamp in a “magic lantern”, and a jet – as a beam that transmits an image into space.

 

As part of the work on the Catalogue, sketches of light sculptures based on black holes are being developed.

 

You can see one of the sketches presented.
