We thought we knew everything, but there were loose ends. We made much progress, but snags would appear. We pulled on the threads and a patch would unravel. A riddle within a riddle. Truth out of reach. The numbers were spinning a lie, exposed by our own observation. A dark energy must dominate our world. Now we must forget everything. What do we know with absolute certainty? We know there is space. We know there is energy. Enough to begin.

The Dark Universe - 400cm x 200cm acrylic on four panels

Based on a lattice of Kelvin cells, with a layout derived from an AI generated interpretation of dark matter and dark energy. This is one of two large Kelvin paintings commissioned by the Quantum Theory Group at the University of Glasgow.

The Light Universe - 400cm x 200cm acrylic on four panels

A lattice of Kelvin cells through which light is transmitting. The lines are based on the spectral emission pattern of carbon with colours taken from the Kelvin colour scale. This is the second of two large Kelvin paintings commissioned by the Quantum Theory Group at the University of Glasgow.

Animation #961385973 - Kelvin's ether

In 1887, Lord Kelvin proposed a structure for the universe based on a complex lattice of doubly-curved truncated octahedrons. Gregor re-created that structure using 3D computer modelling software to celebrate 200 years since Kelvin's birth.
