Impossibility of the Superstring Theory

This should be the biggest drawing installation for the Singapore Biennale 2008. It covers the walls, ceiling and floor of a entire block in South Beach Development.

The drawing is done by Joshua Yang, a Malaysian artist who lives and works in Singapore. Joshua begins his drawings as the exploration of an area to be covered by his linear meanderings. Layered with the scientific conundrum of the “Superstring Theory” – Joshua’s method of working is based on a strict system:

1. The line must not intersect itself at any point

2. The line must be continuous and no breaks

Here are some photos of his artwork:

How much space can a single line occupy? Apparently, an entire building block in Joshua’s drawing as seen above! 🙂
