A Collection of Curious Objects

What happens to once-celebrated, now superseded theories?

Physicists are busy developing sophisticated theories around the existence of things that are impossible for us to see, perfecting mathematical models of the 'beyond-visible' worlds of the very large and distant (using Einstein's theory of relativity) and the very small (using quantum mechanics).

Focusing on this realm of the intangible, I wanted to explore how abstract theoretical ideas can be visually represented. I also wanted to play with the notion that today's cutting-edge theories may one day be seen as quaint and curious museum pieces: theoretical antiques or abstract junk.

The objects might be found in someone's dusty attic or perhaps turn up on Antiques Roadshow in the future: "Oh my! Look what they thought in 2008!"
